Tooth Decay Causes Toothaches
The most probable cause of toothache is tooth decay. Tooth decay affects tooth pulp that contains nerve endings causing great pain.
– Inflammation of the dental pulp will cause toothaches and could be caused by tooth decay.
– Cracked teeth, bruxism, and receding gums are other possible causes of toothaches.
– Do not confuse toothaches for sinus infections, ear infections and tense facial muscles that will be accompanied by headaches.
The severity of a toothache can vary. It ranges from mild to severe, can be constant and at times, intermittent.
