Pain in the tooth only on sleeping clearly indicates irreversible pulpitis... It happens coz of the posture .. Wen u sleep the blood supply cuts off n pressure builds up high internally, that's the reason u get pain... Don't panic,  Immediately start the root canal treatment ur pain ll definitely come down right then.. Pain on sleeping doesn't indicate the wisdom tooth most of the times.. It ll b only a progression of caries extension...

Pain in the teeth while sleeping. .or pain in teeth that increases on sleeping is indicative of tooth decay that may require root canal treatment. It could also be because of insufficient space for wisdom tooth exerting pressure on next tooth. X ray of the region where the pain is will help in confirming the diagnosis
