Severe tooth pain at night strongly points towards a condition called ‘acute pulpitis’. It is the condition when the innermost part of the tooth (pulp) gets infected. In this condition, the pain is usually sharp and severe at night. It might also radiate towards the ear and can be difficult to pinpoint the exact location of pain. Causes for such a condition can be caries, traumatic injury of tooth and fracture of tooth structure. If you are suffering from these symptoms, the treatment option is to go for a root canal treatment. However, a through examination and an x-ray will be necessary for the proper diagnosis and the treatment.
