Are you suffering from a Toothache? A Toothache is a common Dental concern and can be caused by a number of reasons. In this article, we will cover what causes a Toothache, common Toothache symptoms and how to get rid of a Toothache.

What Is a Toothache?

A Toothache, or tooth pain, occurs when the tooth, gums or mouth are irritated. Toothaches are often caused by dental decay or infection, or after tooth extraction. Pain may occur in the tooth, gums, jaw or mouth. Some toothaches are minor and can be soothed with at-home remedies, while others may be an indication of severe Dental problems.

Toothache symptoms can vary depending on the cause of the pain. Toothache symptoms can be: 

  • Sharp, throbbing or consistent tooth pain 
  • Fever or headache
  • Swelling in the mouth
  • Pain or tightness in the jaw
  • Drainage around the infected area
  • Pain when biting or chewing
  • Ear or sinus pain

 

If you’re experiencing any of these toothache symptoms, you should visit your Dentist as soon as possible.

What Causes a Toothache?

What causes a Toothache? Toothaches can be caused by a variety of Dental issues. Depending on the Toothache cause, it can be resolved with minor professional treatment, or require an Emergency Dental Appointment. Toothache causes can include: 

  • Gum disease
  • Tooth infection
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Sensitive teeth 
  • Poor dental hygiene 
  • Damaged or broken teeth
  • Grinding your teeth (Bruxism)

 

Your Dentist will help to determine the cause of your Toothache and recommend the best treatment to alleviate your pain. 

How To Get Rid of a Toothache

How to get rid of a Toothache? If you’re experiencing a Toothache, it’s important to firstly book to see your Dentist. When you call to book an appointment, discuss your symptoms and your Dentist can help to determine if you require an Emergency Dental Appointment or a General Consultation. Dental problems such as broken teeth, cavities or infections will only get worse over time. By catching your Dental problem early, you have a better chance of healing your condition and preventing further damage.

At-Home Toothache Remedies

While waiting for your Dental Appointment, there are a few at-home Toothache remedies to help ease Toothache pain. At-home Toothache remedies include a rinse with warm saltwater, a cold compress to the affected area and over-the-counter pain medications. If the pain is impacting your ability to talk, eat, drink or sleep, you need to book an Emergency Dentist Appointment. 

Is a Toothache a Dental Emergency?

A Toothache can often be categorised as a Dental Emergency as it typically indicates a more serious Dental issue. A toothache can be a sign of a tooth infection, gum disease, impacted wisdom teeth and damaged or broken teeth. When is a Toothache an emergency? If you are experiencing any of the following Toothache symptoms, it’s important to see an Emergency Dentist as soon as possible:

  • Trouble chewing or eating
