Are you aware of toothaches and their potential effect on your oral health? A toothache is an abscessed tooth that has suffered an infection. If it is left untreated, it can cause serious problems, including tooth loss, and lead to further infection within your mouth.

In order to make sure that your smile is always welcome against the risk of toothaches, be aware of the signs and symptoms that can easily arise indicating their presence. If you are taking any over-the-counter medications such as pain relievers and pain is still felt, it could be linked to a serious problem such as a toothache. Furthermore, if you have recently had a tooth extracted and pain is still felt twenty-four hours after the extraction, visit our dentist for a toothache assessment. Other common symptoms include noticeable discharge around a tooth, high fevers, the presence of chills, facial rashes, oral inflammation and swelling of your face around your jaw. To see the appropriate treatment for toothaches that are present, visit our dentist for a toothache assessment exam.
