Is your toothache being caused by nerve damage? The truth is, all toothaches should be treated as serious issues. If you feel pain in a tooth, or notice an irregularity, then something is wrong that needs to be corrected.

Toothaches can have complications. If you take an over-the-counter pain reliever and your toothache persists after 24 hours, you should contact your dentist. You should also contact us if the pain continues after a tooth extraction or other treatment.

Contact your dentist if you notice a discharge around a tooth, or an abscess. On occasion, the joints in your jaw may also be feel painful. If you have high fevers or unexplained chills or a rash, you should make an appointment to see us as soon as possible.
