Unfortunately, when a toothache strikes, it can lead to severe pain, which you will want to have treated as soon as possible. A toothache is caused by damage to the nerve endings within a tooth, which could indicate other problems. In order to keep your oral health at its best, consider the following toothache facts:

– Toothaches frequently cause swelling around the tooth, fevers, rashes and chills if they are left unchecked.
– If you find yourself suffering from a temporomandibular joint disorder in your jaw, toothaches may occur.
– If you have taken over-the-counter pain medications, and your mouth is still in pain, or if you are still feeling pain 24 hours after a tooth extraction, contact your dentist
