Are you aware of what a toothache is? A toothache is damage to a tooth that often results in a pus-filled pocket called an abscess. Furthermore, toothaches can occur in the areas around a tooth, as well as eventually work their way into the pulp of a tooth. Toothaches must be treated appropriately before they can do further damage. However, the first step is spotting toothaches as soon as they occur.
One of the first signs of a toothache in your mouth is pain that can be felt despite using pain-relieving medications. In addition, if you continue to feel pain up to 24 hours after a tooth has been pulled, it may be signs that a toothache has begun to form. Another common sign of toothaches is noticeable charge and pus buildup in the areas around a tooth.
If you have suffered an accident or injury, be aware of additional damages that can slowly creep up on your smile later on. A toothache is one of them, so be aware of the symptoms that can potentially lead to further harm. If your temporomandibular joints in your jaw are also damaged, a toothache can arise. In addition, if you notice symptoms of high fevers, facial rashes, fever, or chills that are difficult to treat with traditional medications, they may be caused by a toothache.
