If you’re feeling pain in your mouth around your teeth, you may be suffering from what is known as a toothache. Toothaches are typically described as infections in and around your tooth in which abscess and pus are present. If left untreated, bacteria may enter the pulp of a tooth and lead to pulp death. At this point, a root canal therapy will be needed in order to save the tooth. To prevent damage to your teeth, look for the indications that toothaches are present, and be aware of all causes that can lead to toothaches.
If you are suffering from pain in your teeth, it is important to look for the signs that it may be due to a serious infection. Toothaches typically cause pain regardless of medications you may be taking. If you feel pain even after taking over-the-counter medications, or severe pain after a tooth has been pulled, it may be due to a toothache. In addition, any inflammation in your face, high fevers, unexplainable chills, and facial rashes can all be due to a toothache.
Toothaches can arise due to oral accidents and injuries, or other oral health disorders and conditions. If you suffer from a TMJ disorder, have issues arising due to wisdom teeth erupting, or have suffered from a severe or accident in blunt trauma, a toothache may result.
