Toothaches are a common dental problem and are characterized by pain from the tooth, the area surrounding a tooth or the jawline area near a particular tooth. Occasionally, a toothache will stem from the jaw joint. Common causes of toothaches include:
- Cracked teeth
- Periodontal disease
- Exposed tooth roots
Toothaches may also be the result of other medical conditions, such as ear infections, sinus infections and heart attacks.
