Pain in the mouth is often the result of a cavity, and can appear in any number of places. The teeth, gums, roots, the palate, tongue and jaw are all susceptible to pain when a cavity is the culprit. If left untreated, the pain caused by a cavity will only grow continually worse, and may also result in an infection.
Pain in the mouth areas can also be the result of other oral problems, such as impacted and abscessed teeth, and sore jaws from teeth grinding. Additionally, improper bite relationships and jaw disorders can also cause pain, as well as sleep disorders, and headaches and neck aches.
