Have you ever wondered what is causing your painful toothache? Usually, a toothache is the result of damaged nerve endings, which indicate damage to the pulp of a tooth. If you feel any pain or discomfort, you should seek treatment for a toothache.
Toothaches are often characterized by pain in your mouth that lasts a full day after you have taken medication. Also, be on the lookout for a fever, rash, chills, excessive swelling, and discharge around a tooth.
The reason toothaches are painful is because the pulp contains the nerve endings of a tooth. If the nerves are damaged, pain will result. However, a toothache does not mean that the tooth must be extracted. Schedule an appointment for a consultation with your dentist so together, you can determine which course of treatment will work best for you to save your tooth and your smile.
