Main Causes of Toothache

Toothache cannot always be avoided but a good dental routine is the best way to prevent it from happening. Brushing teeth properly twice daily, flossing and regular check-ups at the dentist are all necessary for maintaining teeth and gums in top shape but this may not always be enough.

Principal reasons for toothache include:

– Infection

– Overly vigorous brushing

– Teeth grinding

Aching teeth could also be indicative of “a case of severe tooth sensitivity” which may be a result of chipped or damaged tooth enamel. Your dentist should always be informed of any toothaches to evaluate the situation and further reading on the topic can be found at
