It’s happened to everyone at one point or another…out of what seems like nowhere, one of your teeth starts to ache profusely. Sometimes the pain gets so bad that it can make talking and eating very difficult.
The main causes of a toothache include, but are not limited to:
– Abscessed tooth
– Tooth decay
– Fractured tooth
– Infected gums
The symptoms that one may have while dealing with a toothache may include:
– Swelling around the tooth
– Pain on or around the tooth
– Headache and/or fever
There are many temporary remedies for toothaches that you can pick up from your local pharmacy, but you have to remember that they are only temporary and can’t provide long lasting relief. To get to the root of the problem (literally!) your best option is to consult with your local Ottawa dental professional. They will be able to assess the mouth correctly and find out exactly why you have a toothache, and determine the best remedy.
