I have 22 years as a dental hygienist. Without an exam I can only say dentistry is painless - don't worry about that. There are too many causes of dental pain to list - decay, cracked tooth, abscess, periodontal problems, etc. You need xrays and a professional diagnosis at a dental off to determine what is going on.
