The term "toothache" describes pain that develops near the teeth and jaw. Many conditions can lead to toothache pain.The soft tissues or gums that surround the teeth might cause pain. About Toothaches
From a brief sharp pain to a persistent dull aching, toothache pain can range in intensity from mild to severe. If left untreated, toothaches not only cause terrible pain but can also result in face swelling and be followed by flu-like symptoms.
Eating or drinking can make it worse, especially if the food or drink is extremely hot or cold. Getting regular check-ups can be a helpful approach to avoid getting a toothache to begin with.
There are several potential reasons of toothaches, including:
• Dental decay
• Cracked, broken, or filled teeth
• Actively shifting teeth during orthodontic treatment
• Teeth that have partially erupted and are surrounded by infected gum
• Tooth abscess
While you wait for your appointment, you could try the following measures to try to reduce the discomfort:
• Taking pain relievers like Ibuprofen or Paracetamol: consult your nearest pharmacist for help.
• Using saltwater to rinse your mouth, despite the fact that children should not do this
• Using a pain-relieving mouth gel that may be obtained from pharmacies or supermarkets to apply to the afflicted area
• Consuming softer meals, such as yoghurt or scrambled eggs
• Avoiding biting down on the sore teeth
• Foods that are very hot or cold should be avoided
• If your orthodontic brace is rubbing on your gums, lips, or cheeks, use wax to cover the area.
