What Are Possible Causes of Toothache

Pain in your teeth can be due to various causes. Even mild pain can point to an issue in your oral health, so it is always best to consult a dentist. Painkillers will treat mild discomfort, but a professional opinion is always preferable to prevent escalation. Causes of toothache are:

– General sensitivity

– Tooth decay (cavities)

– Infection or abscess

– Teeth grinding (known as bruxism)

– Trauma such as a creak or break

– Impacted wisdom teeth

The longer you wait to have your tooth pain addressed, the higher the chances that your tooth will need to be removed.”
