Spontaneous Pain

This invariably results from either an acute or chronic inflammatory response, either stemming from a compromised pulp within a tooth or associated supportive tissues. This may be further complicated by infection,neurological or vascular considerations or musculoskeletal issues. Most often seen are those deemed either as reversible or irreversible pulpitis. The former situation is one in which symptoms are transient in nature while the latter often displays a combination of pain without a stimulus being present. This means that pain is present without heat, cold or chewing being present ,yet when subjected to these stimuli the pain is exacerbated both in intensity and duration. The area may appear and feel swollen or hot to the touch with hot beverages being particularly unpleasant. Interesting to this point as the pulpitis evolves continued application of cold water to the area may be the only means of controlling the pain until a dentist can be seen. Also attempts at dealing with the pain with OTC analgesics is minimally effective.
