Can Toothaches Be Treated?

Posted .

Can toothaches be treated? Of course, the answer is yes, but on many occasions, individuals do not receive regular checkups and examinations to determine if toothaches may be present or if your teeth are at risk for a toothache. If you begin to feel pain in a tooth, check for the following symptoms and schedule a visit to our office.

– Depending on the severity of the procedure, if you have had a tooth lost or extracted and continue to feel severe pain 24 hours later, it may be linked to a toothache.

– Have you noticed any irregular swelling or fevers lately? If so, it may be the sign of a toothache and abscess.

– If you ever notice or have any unexplained or abnormal facial rashes, high fevers, and chills, you may be suffering from the lingering effects of a toothache.

– Not all lost teeth are guaranteed to damage your mouth, but some do cause toothaches.

– If you suffer from jaw pain and temporomandibular joint disorders, you could be at an increased risk for toothaches.

– Toothaches typically extend beyond pain relievers, so check if pain continues even after pain-relieving medications are taken.
