When you have a toothache, it’s a sign that something is wrong. Getting to the root cause as soon as possible is very important and it is something only a professional dentist like ours at Dental Pros can do. Some possible common causes of toothaches are minor and might not require as much as other more serious issues. Some examples of minor causes of toothaches are: minor tooth decay, a small cavity, or gingivitis. These can be treated fairly easily, however, if they are not promptly treated, they can lead to more serious oral health problems. Some serious problems that can cause toothaches include but aren’t limited to: advanced periodontal (gum) disease, which can cause tooth loss and an abscess, which, if not treated promptly enough, can spread quickly and lead to a life-threatening condition called sepsis. Since small problems can quickly turn into serious problems, you should contact your dentist as soon as you notice any symptoms.
