Do you have a toothache? A toothache is characterized by damage directly to your nerve endings that lie within the pulp of a tooth. Although toothaches are typically associated with pain, it is important to look for visual signs and symptoms as well, as pain may not always be felt. Listed below are a few common signs and symptoms for toothaches:
-Do you continue to feel pain in your mouth even after using pain relievers?
-Are the TMJs in your jaw damaged or sore?
-Has your face begun to swell?
-Do you notice any discharge or abscesses in your mouth?
-Do you constantly feel severe pain in your mouth?
-Do you have an irregular chills, high fevers, or facial rashes that cannot be otherwise explained?
-Have you lost any teeth due to blunt trauma?
-Are your wisdom teeth causing pain or inflammation as they are erupting above your gum line?
