Causes of Toothaches
Toothaches usually manifest as severe throbbing pain in and around the tooth. It is also important that you familiarize yourself with the small abnormalities that may be causing your toothache.
•Severe tooth decay is the leading cause of toothaches among patients. A cavity that has gotten deep enough to affect and infect the nerve tissue inside the tooth causes discomfort and pain.
•Teeth fractures and cracks are common but mostly go unnoticed due to their nature. A cracked tooth may cause a sensation when eating hot or cold foods and may lead to further dental problems if left untreated.
•Worn dental restorations may also cause toothaches. For instance, leaking fillings may accelerate tooth decay which later results in a toothache.
Visit your local dentist and you can help uncover the cause and receive treatment before it’s too late to save your tooth.
