Did you know that a toothache needs to be treated as soon as possible to eliminate the spread of decay and infection? Because a toothache occurs due to an abscessed tooth that has an infection, it is important to be aware of the causes and what you can do to help prevent them. If a toothache does occur, you will need to look for the signs and symptoms of its presence and visit your doctor for the appropriate restorations.
Visual abnormalities and irregularities within your smile includes pain even after using over-the-counter medications is often the sign of a toothache. If you notice any discharge around a tooth or have any swelling in your face or a fever as the result of an abscess, it could be the result of a tooth infection.
