SYMPTOMS OF A TOOTHACHE

If you’re experiencing a toothache, it could be more than just a painful nuisance. A toothache is generally a symptom of inflammation in the tooth. The most common cause of a toothache is a cavity. However, a toothache can also be a symptom of gum disease or infection.

  • Constant sharp or dull pain
  • Painful, swollen gums
  • Fever or headache
  • Pain under pressure from things like chewing
  • Bad taste in mouth as a result from infection

MORE ABOUT A TOOTHACHE

Typically, a toothache won’t go away on its own, and its underlying cause must be treated in order to feel relief. If you’re experiencing a toothache, see your Austin dentist as soon as possible.
