How to Spot and Treat a Toothache

Posted .

If you have never had a toothache, consider yourself lucky. Toothaches are oral health disorders that exist when nerve endings in a tooth become damaged. They can be extremely painful and can lead to tooth loss if they are not treated properly. For more information about spotting and treating a toothache, consider the following:

– If you ever notice or have any mysterious or abnormal facial rashes, high fevers, and chills, you may be suffering from the lingering effects of a toothache.
– Have you noticed any uncommon signs of inflammation or fevers lately? If so, it may be the result of a toothache and abscess.
– If you have suffered a lost or extracted tooth and continue to feel severe pain 24 hours later, it may be linked to a toothache.
– Toothaches typically are felt despite the use of pain relievers, so check if pain continues even after pain-relieving medications are taken.
– If you suffer from jaw pain and temporomandibular joint disorders, you could be at a greater risk for toothaches.
