Toothache & Tooth Pain Directory

"Toothache" and "tooth pain" generally describe pain in the mouth due to an injury or other type of dental condition. Some typical causes of toothaches are an exposed nerve or tooth root, gum disease, a cavity in a tooth, or a cracked tooth from an acute injury. Tooth pain can range from mild to severe and either last a short time or be chronic pain. No matter the pain, it is best to see your dentist right away. Other types of tooth pain stem from hot or cold drinks or originate around the jaw. The best way to find out the cause of a toothache is to see your dentist.
