Why the tooth ache is increased at night time as compared to day time?
Question Date: 2013-05-26
Answer 1:

I can think of 2 reasons why tooth aches would feel worse at night:

1. You have been eating during the day, so your tooth has been getting more sore from being used.

2. You are quiet at night, and you are not distracted by the exciting things going on during the day; so you feel the pain more.
