20 May Toothaches and Reasons Why
Toothaches are pains within the mouth around the area of the tooth. There are many reasons there can be a toothache and the type of treatment will differ depending on what it is.
Here are three reasons why you might have a toothache:
Untreated tooth decay has the possibility of spreading deeper into the tooth, causing more pain. Signs of tooth decay in the early stages can include discomfort to cold foods and drinks, or sweet foods and drinks. If the decay spreads to the nerve at the centre of the tooth, there is a chance that it can lead to more toothache and infections.
Wisdom teeth that are coming out of the gums can cause pain. As it is a growing tooth, it can be difficult to brush and maintain these teeth, which can lead to built up bacteria. If there is a lot of bacteria, it can lead to more toothache, inflammation, or infections.
Broken teeth can be caused from many different things. Tooth decay can cause the teeth to lose its strong structure and to become weak, making it easily breakable. Teeth can also break by biting on hard things such as lollies, nuts, olive seeds and other tough surfaces. This can lead to toothache.
