Your dentist is best placed to work out what’s causing your painful toothache. Here are some of the potential causes:
– Untreated gum disease can cause pain due to pockets of infection around the roots of your teeth.
– Severe toothache could also be due to wisdom teeth that have erupted too close to existing teeth or bruxism (tooth grinding).
– Tooth decay can also result in severe sensitivity and infections within the tooth that are very painful.
“Pain in the mouth is also associated with oral cancer and may masquerade as a toothache.”
