What is a toothache?

“Toothache” is a vague term actually caused by both tooth and jaw problems.  A few issues that lead to tooth pain:

  • Cavities
  • Cracked teeth
  • Exposed roots
  • Gum disease
  • Jawbone erosion
  • Muscle Spasms


Symptoms of a toothache:

  • Pain when chewing
  • Dull aching
  • Throbbing sensations
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold liquids


Is a toothache curable?


YES! What a relief, advanced dental technologies allow us to cure or fix nearly every single problem that may be causing your tooth pain. Dental x-rays can help determine the cause and pinpoint whether the toothache is coming from a tooth or jaw problem. After x-rays, your dentist will be able to provide a comprehensive treatment plan to treat your tooth pains.


As you can see, regular checkups at your dentist can detect and prevent many other medical problems. Keep scheduling your regular appointments and don’t waste your precious time on toothache!
