The Root Cause of Toothache

Although it is not always the case, toothaches can often be traced back to tooth decay. This is because the decay affects the tooth’s inner pulp and root nerves as well as causing cavities and inflammation. 

Avoiding tooth decay is the best way to avoid toothache and this can be achieved by brushing and flossing daily in combination with regular check-ups at the dentist. Other less common culprits include:

  • Damaged or ageing dental work
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Injury to the teeth, jaw or mouth

Toothache is something that should never be simply ignored as it will continue to get worse until it’s treated and you can find out more at
