Toothache: What to do
Toothaches come and go, sometimes seemingly without any reason. But don't let the transient nature of a toothache pain fool you. It's typically a clear sign that something's seriously wrong with your teeth. The severity of a toothache can range from chronic and mild to sharp and excruciating. The pain may be aggravated by chewing or by cold or heat.
A toothache can be caused by sensitivity to hot or cold or a more serious problem like a dental cavity, dental abscess, a cracked/fractured tooth, an exposed tooth root or gum disease. One thing's for sure: If you've had a bad toothache for more than a couple of days, you should see your dentist!
