Impacted wisdom teeth can be a cause of severe pain. See your dentist right away if you experience tooth pain.


Key takeaways:

  • Inflammation of the dental pulp will cause toothaches and could be caused by tooth decay.

  • Cracked teeth, bruxism, and receding gums are other possible causes of toothaches.

  • Do not confuse toothaches for sinus infections, ear infections and tense facial muscles that will be accompanied by headaches.

The severity of a toothache can vary. It ranges from mild to severe, can be constant and at times, intermittent.
