Main Causes of Toothache


Regardless of how well we look after our teeth, there is always the chance that toothache will strike at some point in time. Of course, brushing and flossing properly and regularly visiting the dentist will reduce the risk of toothache — but sometimes this is simply out of our control.

Toothache can occur for a number of reasons, both dental and non-dental, and among the chief causes are:

Infection – Infections are usually caused by tooth decay or gum disease but can also occur due to an injury or damage to the teeth.

Injury or Trauma – A fall, a blow to the mouth or an accidental injury can cause damage resulting in a bruised tooth and accompanying toothache.

Bruxism – Commonly referred to as teeth grinding, this can exert unnecessary pressure on the teeth and the underlying ligaments. Bruxism is often typified by toothache or painful jaws.

Less commonly a toothache may be the result of tooth sensitivity or damaged dental restorative work such as a filling or a dental crown — and any of these issues will require the attention of a dentist both to alleviate the immediate pain and restore the teeth and gums to perfect health.
