Why does a toothache seem worse at night?

It’s usually one or more of the following factors:

  • Your sleeping position can cause more blood to rush to your head, thereby putting increased pressure on your mouth
  • Because your brain has fewer distractions at night, and you may become more aware of pain in your body
  • You may be suffering from unconscious tooth grinding at night, which can either aggravate your pain or be the cause of your tooth sensitivity/pain
