My boyfriend is having intense tooth pains in all of his

Customer Question

Hi there. My boyfriend is having intense tooth pains in all of his teeth and is convinced there is nothing a dentist can do for him. His pain shows up every once in a while but it usually leaves him in tears. What could be causing the pain and what can we do to relieve it?
JA: Is the pain consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: It fluctuates
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so the dentist can help you best.
Customer: What information do you need?

Hi, thanks for asking your question. Does the pain happen when he eats or is it spontaneous? Does hot and/or cold cause it to happen? Also, when was the last time he went to a dentist and had some xrays taken? Dr Magida

Well if the pain is as intense as you state he may have some kind of tooth infection, deep cavity, or even severe temporomandibular joint pain so in order to help him, he definitely needs to go to the dentist. What more specifics can you give me?
