If you have a toothache, it is due to damage to the nerve endings within a tooth. Not only is a toothache painful, it is also distracting. For some guidelines concerning toothaches, see below.

– If you find yourself suffering from a temporomandibular joint disorder in your jaw, you may develop a toothache
– If you have taken over-the-counter pain medications, and are still in pain, or if you still have pain 24 hours after a tooth extraction, contact your dentist.
– Despite the fact that toothaches are confined to a small area, they can contribute to rashes and swelling in and around your face, abnormally high fevers, and chills throughout your body.

To prevent toothaches, make sure you are following the proper treatment techniques for a healthy smile that can last a lifetime. If you would like an exam and cleaning from Dr. Jennifer E.
