    Infections of the roots is another cause. Gum disease is also serious.

    Gum infection. A dentist can check that if you tell them you have pain. I once had tooth pain from chewing too much gum! I quit smoking a while ago and had to chew gum all the time. Luckily I cut down and the teeth stopped hurting.
