Toothache can be extremely excruciating and uncomfortable. So how do we tell the difference from tooth sensitivity?
First of all, if tooth sensitivity is left untreated can turn into a toothache. But the root of the problem is the same, cavities or in some cases, gum problems.
Toothache can be felt in many ways. It is not always consistent. It can happen when you are eating/drinking or even when you’re lying down. The pain can also range from mild to severe.
NOTE : Visit your Dentist immediately if you feel pain in your teeth. If you prolonged this longer than 2 days , it may lead to something more severe.
Here are some signs and symptoms to look out for :
- Swollen, red gums surrounding the infected teeth. Your gums may also be bleeding .
- It is painful when chewing, eating, drinking and even lying down at night.
- There’s a bad taste in your mouth that you can’t get rid off.
- You may also have fever and headache due to a toothache
The good news is, toothache can be prevented easily. Simply reduce your sugar intake, brush and floss your teeth regularly and visit the Dentist every 4-6 months.
