What Causes Toothache?

teeth, health, smile, dentist, dentalhealth , oralhealthTooth discomfort or pain warns us we should see the dentist soon. Left untreated, severe pain or even deep, life-threatening infections may result.

Causes of tooth pain:

– Dental infections happen when bacteria get inside nerves and roots, due to decay or trauma.

– Over-brushing eventually erodes the enamel of the teeth, provoking sensitivity or toothache.

– Also known as bruxism, the habit of tooth grinding while sleeping can cause pain.

It is important not to diagnose at home; in case there is infection, a delay increases the chances that the tooth may need extracting.
