What is a Toothache?
A toothache usually refers to pain around the teeth or jaws and is primarily a result of a dental condition. In most instances, toothaches are caused by tooth problems, such as a dental cavity, a cracked tooth, an exposed tooth root, or gum disease. Disorders of the jaw joint can also cause pain that can be referred to as a toothache. The severity of a toothache can range from mild to sharp and excruciating. The pain may be aggravated by chewing, cold, or heat. A thorough oral examination, including dental X-rays, can help determine whether the toothache is coming from a tooth or jaw problem, and the cause.
