Toothaches are a highly common but potentially dangerous oral health risk. Although damage to your gums and other areas may lead to toothache-like symptoms, actual toothaches are abscessed teeth with infections in the nearby area. If left untreated it can lead to serious infections in your jawbone, teeth, and surrounding tissues. Furthermore, tooth loss can occur. Thus, it is important to have toothaches treated as soon as possible.
Common signs and symptoms of a toothache include the following:
– Pain that is felt even after using over-the-counter medications may be a sign of a toothache.
– If severe pain continues for longer than 24 hours after a tooth has been pulled, a toothache may be to blame.
– Look for signs and symptoms of a toothache, including noticeable discharge around a tooth.
– Oral accidents and injuries can greatly increase an individual’s risk for toothaches.
– If you suffer from an oral health condition such as a TMJ disorder, the likelihood of a toothache arising is greatly increased.
– When the last of your wisdom teeth grow in as a teen, they may continue to cause pain when erupting and can cause inflation, often leading to toothaches.
– Numerous symptoms of toothaches include high fevers, chills, and facial rashes that cannot be easily explained.
