As your year comes to an end, it is important to set forth a more effective treatment plan for your smile next year. Always make sure you’re protecting your teeth against any potential forms of infection that can lead to tooth abscesses and toothaches. If an abscess is not treated, it can lead to severe infections in your jawbone, teeth, and surrounding tissues. To protect yourself, be aware that toothaches are often linked to various signs, symptoms, and causes.

It is important to take the necessary steps to protect your smile from any risks of toothaches. If a toothache is present, it will often come with signs and symptoms alerting you to its presence. Furthermore, if you feel pain in your mouth and continue using medications but the pain continues, it may be a result of nerve damage associated with toothaches. Even if you have a tooth extracted, it may contain a toothache if pain continues for longer than 24 hours.

If you notice any high fevers or chills that cannot be treated with medications, or facial rashes arise that are not easily explained, it may be related to a toothache. Furthermore, if you suffer from an oral accident or injury, or have a TMJ disorder, it is important to visit with your dentist to determine if a toothache is present, even if no other symptoms are visible.
