Toothache pain is like an unpaid speeding ticket. Ignoring it won’t make it go away.
Many dread seeking relief from a dentist because they fear the treatment will hurt worse than the pain they are experiencing. But waiting too long is never a good idea.
The most common cause of a toothache is a cavity. In most cases cavities are easily treatable, and will relieve your discomfort.
A toothache may also be a symptom of something more serious, like gum disease. You may also have sustained an injury that is worse than you realized, or may even have an abscessed tooth.
Finally, a toothache can indicate something that has nothing to do with the tooth itself. Toothache symptoms can be mimicked by a sinus infection, shingles, or something else.
