We’ve all most likely had a toothache sometime in our lives. In most cases toothaches are caused by problems in the tooth or jaw, such as tooth cavities, gingival recession, cracked tooth, wisdom teeth dry socket problems (after extraction), etc. As indicated above, some causes of toothache are the more obvious culprits such as a cracked tooth, filling or veneer, or from dental attrition or dental erosion eating acidic, sweet foods that corrode the fillings and the tooth’s protective enamel layer or pain in dental crown. This corrosion is caused from the bacteria that are present on the teeth which break down the sugars in refined foods and then excrete them in the form of acids. These acids then eat away at the protective enamel of the tooth, causing a dental caries or cavity, infection and eventually toothache.

The severity of a toothache can range from a mild discomfort to excruciating pain. This pain can often be aggravated somewhat by chewing or by drinking something that is either hot or cold in temperature. An oral examination complete with X-rays can help discover the cause.

Severe toothache pain may be considered a dental emergency – but more mild cases of toothache can be alleviated through a myriad of home remedies.
