Do you think you are suffering from a toothache but are unsure based on your symptoms? Although toothache symptoms vary and can have wide-ranging effects, there are several indications that you may be suffering from a toothache. Do you have severe or debilitating pain in and around your facial area that fails to go away even after using medications? If so, you may have a toothache.
Toothaches are oral health conditions that arise when your pulp within a tooth is damaged. Within the pulp lies your nerve endings, connective tissue, and blood vessels. If your nerve endings are damaged, severe pain linked to a toothache will arise. In addition, swelling, inflammation, and noticeable discharge may also be present.
Further symptoms of toothaches include high fevers, chills, facial rashes, and other irregularities and abnormalities that have no other attributable cause. If you have recently suffered an oral accident or injury including blunt trauma to your head, neck, jaw, or face area, a toothache may have developed. For a complete toothache examination, visit your dentist.
