What is a Toothache?

by Annette Badowski

Posted on Thursday 23rd of October 2008


A toothache is noted as a pain in the teeth, jaws gum and related areas of the face and mouth. The typical cause of a toothache is a dental cavity with the second most common cause being gum disease. Another contributor to a toothache is pulpitis, the inflammation of the pulp of the tooth. With a toothache, short, sharp pains can occur in response to hot, cold or sweet stimuli. If pulpitis has turned into a dental abscess, the pain happens when pressure or air is applied to the tooth. The pain of an abscess is throbbing, continuous and agonizing.

What are the symptoms of a tooth ache

Here, w will discuss the most common symptoms of a toothache, but the way symptoms present themselves could vary with each individual. These signs include a constant, throbbing pain in the tooth, swollen and bleeding gums and discomfort when pressure is applied or the tooth is exposed to air. It can also be sensitive to hot or cold foods or the jaw in the area of the tooth can be tender and sore. In some cases, fever and a general feeling of malaise can occur. Chewing may aggravate all of the above pain. To identify a cause, dental x-rays and exams may need to be performed by a qualified dentist.

What causes tooth ache

In most cases, a toothache is caused by cavities, decay, jaw problems, gum disease, disease of the jaw joint (temporo- mandibular joint), or spasms of the muscles used for chewing. More serious reasons for toothache include an exposed tooth root, fracture, crack, ulceration of the gums, and a tooth abscess. A tooth abscess may present with fever, and can be extremely deadly if not take care of. Seek medical attention promptly if a tooth abscess is suspected. Most tooth related problems, including cavities, decay and even abscess can be prevented with proper oral hygiene. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing with antiseptic mouthwash are a good way to aid with prevention of most dental diseases that cause toothache.
