Toothaches are the most common form of facial pain and are an indication that there may be problems with the gums and teeth. Practicing good oral health doesn’t guarantee the absence of oral discomfort.
– Inflammation of the dental pulp will cause toothaches and could be caused by tooth decay.
– Cracked teeth, bruxism, and receding gums are other possible causes of toothaches.
– Do not confuse toothaches for sinus infections, ear infections and tense facial muscles that will be accompanied by headaches.
The severity of a toothache can vary. It ranges from mild to severe, can be constant and at times, intermittent.
