Causes of toothache

There are different types of toothaches and they all have various causes. The toothache may be constant, or it may occur occasionally. A toothache can be caused by various conditions:


With an abscess, you have an inflammation in the mouth caused by bacteria. You can recognize an abscess by pain when chewing and under pressure. The dentist examines exactly where the abscess is using his instruments and an X-ray.

Dental erosion

In tooth erosion, tooth enamel wears away due to acids in the mouth. These can be acids from food or from the body itself, such as when you vomit. As the enamel wears away, you are more likely to have a toothache.

Exposed dental necks

When you suffer from gum disease or brush your teeth too hard, the dental necks can become exposed. This gives a very unpleasant feeling known as a toothache.


One of the most common causes of toothache is caries, where you have one or more cavities. Many unhealthy foods increase your chances of getting caries.

Inflammation in the root

An inflamed root is often the result of tooth decay, a leaking filling or an ugly fall. You may experience a nagging toothache as a result. Inflammation is discovered by taking an X-ray.

Inflamed gums

Inflamed gums are often swollen and red in color. You can easily recognize this yourself, for example because it bleeds quickly. Go to the dentist in time to prevent worse symptoms.

Treatment for toothache

The treatment for your toothache depends on what is causing it. In case of caries, our dentist fills the hole so that the nerve is no longer exposed and you will no longer experience pain. The dentist will always first identify the cause and, based on this, discuss with you what treatments are possible. You can always choose whether you want to be treated with or without anesthesia.

Prevention is better than cure

Good oral hygiene reduces the risk of toothache. Below you can read a few tips to prevent toothache:

  • Use a toothbrush with a soft bristle head.
  • Choose a toothpaste that contains fluoride.
  • Brush your teeth twice a day.
  • Avoid acidic foods and drinks.
