There are many different reasons for toothaches and varying degrees of pain. When referring to toothaches, we are usually describing pains such as temperature sensitivity, pressure pain and/or consistent throbbing.
If you are experiencing is mild pain at random intervals it may be a result of tooth decay, sensitive roots from receded gums or a crack/chip.
This toothache may also be occurring at random intervals but the pain is more intense than a mild toothache.
It is most likely sensitivity to temperatures such as hot or cold foods. These toothaches may be caused by brushing too firmly, more severe tooth decay, deeper cracks/chips or even broken fillings.
If your toothache is intense and is interrupting with your daily life, you will need to see a dentist as soon as possible. Intense toothaches can be a result of dying nerves, decay reaching your nerves, large cavities or chronic gum disease.
If you’re suffering from a toothache it is important you book an appointment with as soon as possible. Do not allow the issue to develop and worsen, have it treated as soon as possible.
