If your teeth are hurting or are causing you any form of discomfort, you may have a sinus problem, or you may have a toothache. Toothaches arise when the nerve endings within the root become infected or damaged. To learn more about toothaches, please read the following:

– Although toothaches may be confined to a small area, they can cause swelling and rashes in and around your face, abnormally high fevers, and chills.
– If pain continues in your mouth 24 hours after a tooth extraction or you have taken over-the-counter pain medications and the pain persists, contact your dentist.
– If you are already deal with a temporomandibular joint disorder in your jaw, you may develop a toothache.
