Toothaches are a fairly common problem, even in
the most advanced economies of the world. In the
United States, for example, an estimated 15 million
work days are lost each year because of toothache,
according to 2006 edition of the  leading industry
reference book on endodontics, Cohen's Pathways
of the Pulp. And in the UK, some 1.5 million days of
work are missed either because an adult has a
toothache or an adult must care for a child with a
tooth ache, the UK's Oral health Foundation has

But in the main those problems concern pain in one
tooth. What causes pain in all of teeth? What would
make all of your teeth hurt at once? Are
there any
natural remedies for
general tooth pain? Are there
you should avoid eating if all your teeth hurt?

Tooth Sensitivity - When All Your Teeth Hurt

When all of your teeth hurt, the most likely cause is
nerve sensitivity.

Many nerves surround your teeth but you are rarely
aware of them, until you're in the dentists office and
a nerve is accidentally touched.

Sinus Problems Can Make All of Your Teeth Hurt

The roots of many of your teeth are located next to
your sinuses. The maxillary sinuses are located
above the roots of your upper back molars.  If you
have a cold or you have blocked sinuses because of
allergies, and your sinuses swell, the inflammation
can put pressure on the roots of your teeth, causing
pain. The resulting pain is caused a "sinus

Drink water to hydrate the sinuses and encourage
the mucus in the sinuses to move along.  Adding
Vitamin C to your daily regime can also help to
reduce cold severity and duration by 23%, according
to a 1994 study from the University of Helsinki.

This view of Vitamin C's effectiveness against sinus
infections caused by colds is not shared by all
scientists, however. A 2007 study from Luton &
Dunstable Hospital, Associated Teaching Hospital of
the University of London, found that Vitamin C was
an unproven remedy against acute bacterial
rhinosinusitis. This study instead found that zinc
lozenges helped measurably to shorten the duration
and severity of the symptoms of rhinosinusitis
caused by colds.

Sinusitis, or inflammation of the sinuses, can be
caused by many things, including pollution, dust or
other irritants, viruses or bacteria.  If your sinusitis is
caused by pollution or other irritants, the best course
of action is to reduce exposure to the cause.

Car traffic is a common cause of sinusitis. While you
can't avoid pollution caused by car traffic entirely,
you can greatly reduce your exposure simply by
stepping back from the curb a few feet. The levels of
exposure to fine particulate matter drops
dramatically once you step back about 3 to 5 feet
from the curb.

Should you use antibiotics? There is considerable
misinformation out there about the use of antibiotics
to fight sinusitis. Antibiotics can only fight bacterial
infections. They are of no use in fighting viral
infections, pollution-related sinusitis and sinusitis
caused by other factors. Using antibiotics even when
they offer no hope of relief, is blamed for the rise in
antibioitic-resistant strains of bacteria, or "super

Antibiotics can't kill viral infections but there is
growing evidence that high doses of Vitamin C can
effectively treat many types of viral infections. For
example, a 2014 study from the Bio-Communication
Research Institute, Riordan Clinic, Wichita, Kansas  
found, in the case of Epstein bar virus, that "high
dose intravenous vitamin C therapy has a positive
effect on disease duration and reduction of viral
antibody levels".

Angina Can Make Your Teeth Hurt

Angina pectoris is pain in your chest caused by
blockage of your arteries. Angina is not actually a
disease. It is a symptom of the disease of arterial
blockage, also known as

The classic symptoms of angina are a pain in your
chest that increases with exertion and that stops
with rest.

But there is another, lesser-known symptom of
angina --- pain in your teeth. Angina can produce a
jaw pain that can radiate throughout your mouth.
Your teeth can hurt. Sometimes, the pain can involve
all of your teeth.

If angina is the cause of your tooth pain, it is unlikely
to be the only symptom.

To relieve the pain of angina, you have to address
the underlying cause of blocked arteries. Consult
with your doctor of course. However, if you want to
use complementary strategies, consider eating
walnuts. Studies on mice have found that eating
walnuts before eating a fatty meal can actually block
many of the fatty deposits in your arteries.
are a natural remedy for unblocking clogged arteries

Abscesses Can Radiate Pain Thoughout Your Mouth

Abscess is an infection in the inner pulp of the tooth,
the area that is rich in nerves. Essentially abscesses
are a pocket of pus in your tooth.

Abscess pain radiates through your jaw, sometimes
your ear and head. It can certainly make all of your
teeth hurt.

An abscess will not get better on its own, the
infection is too deep to be reached by self-cleaning.
You will need the care of a dentist, specifically an
endodontist, to prevent the continuing spread of the
infection.  Treating an abscess generally will require
a root canal or other dental surgery, according to
the American Association of Endodontists.

Do You Grind Your Teeth at Night?

If you grind your teeth at night, you may not even be
aware of it. Tooth grinding, technically called
"bruxism, affects between 8% and 31% of people at
some point in their lives, with over 12% describing
the problem as "frequent", according to a 2013
study from the University of Padoma, Italy.

Bruxism can make you wake up with sensitive teeth
and a sore jaw. Other symptoms include developing
larger muscles in your face, stiff neck and shoulders
and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and of course
teeth that are ground down.

Stress can make you grind your teeth at night. In this
case, some form of counseling may help.

Your dentists may also recommend the use of a
mouth guard to protect your teeth at night.

A little-discussed cause of bruxism is sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea occurs when you stop breathing
sometimes hundred of times during the night.  As
many as 25% of people with sleep apnea also grind
their teeth at night, according to a 2009 study from
the Baylor College of Medicine, published in the
American College of Chest Physicians.

Another unusual cause of bruxism is smoking.
Smoking increases your risk of grinding your teeth at
night by 74% compared to people who have never
smoked, according to a 2010 study from the
University of Helsinki in Finland.

You will probably need a CPAP mask to solve the
immediate problem sleep apnea creates of not
getting enough oxygen at night. Over the longer-
term, try these
natural remedies for sleep apnea.
