What to look for
Tooth decay cannot be cured but it can be
controlled by looking after your teeth properly and regularly visiting your dentist.
Other causes of dental pain include
impacted teeth and gum disease.
The most common cause of toothache is
decay. Decay is dental plaque which corrodes the protective enamel on your teeth. Plaque
is made up of the bacteria, acids, and sugars in your mouth. Eventually every time that
you eat something, you will feel pain.
If decay goes untreated, an abscess can
develop and eventually blood poisoning.
Sometimes when the wisdom teeth grow they
become impacted and cause pain. This is common in people in their late teens or early
twenties. You may need to get your wisdom teeth taken out if they cause too much pain and
Toothaches may also be caused by sinus
You will need to go to the dentist for
treatment for decay. Usually the dentist will remove the part of the tooth which is
decayed and fill it with a hard material. However, in the event that there is too much
decay to work on, you may need either a root canal or extraction.
Always see a dentist for pain in your
teeth, however, rubbing clove oil or myrrh around the tooth will help to numb the pain.
