Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Toothache


The symptoms of toothache include sharp pain or dull pain in or around a tooth. The pain is usually felt as a constant or intermittent ache that does not go away. A toothache can be stimulated by temperature changes such as exposure to cold drinks or pressure on the tooth while chewing. In other instances, a tooth can arise spontaneously without any stimulation.

The most common cause of a toothache is a dental cavity as a result of tooth decay. Another common cause of toothache is gum disease. Some other reasons may include abscessed tooth, fractured tooth and dental work.
