Everyone knows that toothache is just no fun. If your toothache has been hanging around for a few days, is severe, or you have other symptoms when you open your mouth wide, it’s time to see a dentist.
There are many possible causes of toothache including:
- Tooth decay
- A fractured tooth
- A damaged filling
- An abscessed tooth
- Infected gums
During an examination, we’ll assess the cause of the toothache and work out how to get you pain free. Symptoms associated with more serious toothache may require antibiotics. Typically, however, we can usually fix the more common causes of toothache pretty quickly to get you out of pain and back to normal life.
