A Positive Oral Health Care Outlook with Toothache Treatments

Posted on November 27, 2017 by wlda

Although toothaches are extremely common, they can often cause severe damage to our smiles. A toothache refers to dental damage to a tooth due to excess tooth decay that has led to infection. Typically, an abscessed tooth arising from a toothache can be caused by numerous issues. If the tooth and the tooth enamel are damaged, the toothache may indicate further damage to the tooth, including pulp damage.

If you have suffered pulp damage, it is necessary to have the tooth removed with an endodontic treatment such as a root canal therapy. However, toothaches may also be due to abscessed infections present in other oral health ailments. Typically, toothaches can be caused by tooth decay, TMJ disorders, wisdom teeth erupting, oral accidents or injuries, periodontal disease, or another similar form of oral health ailment.

Typical symptoms of toothaches include extreme inflammation, high fevers and chills, or rashes that have no known explanation of their cause. If you are noticing any discharge around the tooth, experience severe inflammation both around your teeth and in your face, it may be due to a toothache. Furthermore, if any pain is felt after using medications, or severe pain lasts longer than 24 hours after a tooth is pulled, the presence of a toothache may be the cause.
