When is a toothache more than simply an ache in a tooth? The truth is, all toothaches should be treated as severe, because if you feel pain in a tooth, or notice a visual abnormality, then something is wrong that needs to be repaired. Looking for common signs and symptoms of toothaches can help determine if treatment is required.

Focus your oral health care on toothaches. Save your smile with toothache treatments and these important facts:

– Pain remains even after using over-the-counter medications, and severe pain continues for longer than 24 hours after a tooth has been pulled.

– You have inflammation in your face or have a fever which may be the result of a toothache.

– Visible discharge can be seen or felt around a tooth.

– Damage to your TMJs has taken place.

– A toothache frequently occurs when a tooth has been forcibly knocked out due to an accident or blunt trauma.

– High fevers or chills that cannot be treated with medication and facial rashes that cannot be easily explained may be caused by toothaches.
