Toothaches and Reasons Why

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:

1. Tooth Decay

Untreated tooth decay can spread deeper into the tooth, causing more pain. Signs of tooth decay in the early stages can include discomfort with 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.

2. Wisdom Teeth

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.

3. Broken tooth

Broken teeth can be caused by many different things. Tooth decay can cause the teeth to lose their strong structure and become weak, making them 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.
