Toothache is caused when the nerve to a tooth is irritated or inflammed. It often radiates to the cheek, jaw, jaw joint and ears. The pain is sharp and throbbing, sometimes accompanied by swelling around the tooth, fever and headache. Causes of toothache include tooth decay, abscessed tooth, tooth fracture, a damaged filling, an infection of the tooth's nerve, a cavity (mostly created by bacteria), cracks in the enamel, exposed dental necks, inflammation of the jaw and sinuses, heat and cold stimuli, grinding teeth and infected gums.
Gum disease is an irritation and inflammation of the tissues and bones that surround and support the teeth. The two types of gum disease are called gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis affects the gums, the tissue that surrounds the teeth and causes red, swollen and tender gums that bleed easily.
Periodontitis is a severe gum disease that spreads below the gums to damage the tissues and bone that support the teeth. Periodontitis causes the gums to shrink back from the teeth, leaving pockets between the teeth and gums where germs (bacteria) can grow and damage the bone that supports the teeth. Teeth look longer, may become loose and fall out.
