Facts About Toothaches

Is your mouth causing you trouble? Toothaches can occur when the tooth enamel is breached and the nerve endings within the pulp become damaged. If you think you may be experiencing a toothache consider the following:

– If you suffer from a temporomandibular joint disorder in your jaw, your risk for a toothache increases.
– Although toothaches may be confined to a small area, they can contribute to swelling and rashes in and around your face, abnormally high fevers, and unexplained chills.
– If pain persists in your mouth a full day after a tooth extraction or, you have taken over-the-counter pain medications, still have pain, contact our dentist.
