Toothaches, or pain around teeth, gums, or the jaw can manifest from a variety of oral problems such as a dental cavity, cracked or chipped tooth, exposed tooth root, gum disease, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, or a dental abscess or infection. The only way to identify the cause of your toothache is to have a dental exam and x-ray. It is important to note that tooth pain may subside temporarily, but will almost never stop permanently until the cause has been identified and addressed by a dentist. Left untreated, these problems can quickly lead to additional oral problems or complications resulting in more expensive treatments or even the loss of the tooth or teeth. Maintaining good oral hygiene is also important to your overall health and wellness.
