Yearly Oral Health Reminders: Toothaches

Posted .

If you have any aches or pains in your mouth, there is a chance you have a toothache. Toothaches are infections that are routinely caused by periodontal disease, cracked teeth, and tooth decay. If a toothache does occur, it is important to make sure it is treated immediately before it can do further damage. If you believe a pain in your mouth is a toothache, look for the following signs and symptoms:

– Pain continues even after using over-the-counter medications

– Facial rashes that have no known causes

– Severe pain in your mouth over 24 hours after a tooth is pulled

– Symptoms such as high fevers and chills

– Inflammation in your face

– Noticeable discharge and pus in the areas around the tooth

– Damage to your smile due to an accident or injury that has resulted in blunt trauma to a tooth

– Pain and discomfort due to erupting wisdom teeth

– TMJ disorders
