Toothache or dental pain is pain in the teeth and/or their supporting structures, caused by dental diseases or pain referred to the teeth by non-dental diseases.
Common causes include pulpitis (inflammation of the pulp), dental caries (tooth decay), dental trauma or other factors, dentin hypersensitivity, apical periodontitis (inflammation of the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone around the root apex), dental abscesses, dry socket or gum infection.
Toothache can cause significant impact on sleep, eating and daily activities. If treatment is delayed it can cause severe complication to your oral health and health in general.
