Tooth pain or toothache is caused when the nerve root of the tooth gets irritated. Each tooth will have a dental pulp in the middle that is very soft and sponge like.  Contains lots of blood vessels and sensitive nerves. Inflammation of the pulp inside the tooth leads to toothache. This can also be caused due to dental cavities or dental decay. Something, drinking too hot or too cold cause toothache, as this touches the nerve pulp.
