Most of us have experienced it, that excruciating pain or throbbing in the mouth, that is just about impossible to ignore. Life is so busy these days and the temptation is to just pop a few painkillers and soldier on, hoping that the pain will subside. Fingers crossed that the mystery problem will vanish as quickly as it came, right?
Unfortunately, this just about never happens! And like most things, the longer you leave them, the worse they get. This can be especially true of toothache.
What is a Toothache and when is a toothache an emergency?
A toothache is pain in or around a tooth. There is a wide range of issues that can lead to this pain. Minor toothaches can occur because of temporary gum irritation but a toothache is usually a sign when something is wrong with either your gums or your tooth.
More serious toothaches can be classified as an Emergency. They are dental and mouth problems that won’t get better on their own and will need to be treated by a dentist as soon as possible.
Whether minor or more serious, toothaches should never be ignored and seeing an experienced and trusted dentist as soon as possible is the most advisable thing to do.
