What can I do to get rid of TOOTH PAIN and make a TOOTHACHE go away?
The Toothache is often hard to ignore if it is a sharp pain and sudden or dull and constant. The Source of the Tooth Pain is an affected nerve, so tooth pain also is caused when any nerve in the root of a tooth or other tissues around the teeth are damaged or irritated. Dental infection, trauma, injury, decay, growing infant teeth, surgical procedures in the oral area (Dental extractions, etc.), or tooth loss may be the causes of the dental pain.
Sometimes, Dental Pain originates from other areas of the head and neck, radiates to the jaw, and mimics Toothache. The jaw joint (TMJ Temporomandibular Joint), pains related to the ear, sinuses associated problems are the most causes of those pains; occasionally, in some cases, heart problems also may have symptoms like tooth pain.
The oral cavity is full of Bacteria. Growing bacteria eventually due to poor oral health inside the mouth can impact the normal bacterial flora and slowly cause oral soft tissue(gum disease) and dental decay, which can cause pain. But not all the time; they are associated with pain.
The majority of dental problems can be prevented by maintaining proper oral health like flossing, brushing with appropriate toothpaste, and the most important to do professional teeth scaling and cleaning at least twice a year. It is also critical for children which The dentist may apply sealants and fluoride for those ages.

When to Seek an Emergency Dentist for a Toothache?
Home remedies and over-the-counter medications don’t help to suppress dental pain.
Post dental extraction severe pains; this may occur after a few days (two to three days) after tooth extraction. This condition may result from the healing location clot coming out and bone exposed. The painful condition is known as dry socket syndrome or alveolar osteitis. For Dry Socket treatment, a dental emergency dentist may use some local medications to cover the bone and help the healing process.
Pain is combined with swelling of the face and gum, or any discharge around a tooth persists.
Fever associated with any dental or gum disease. Superficial dental caries does not cause fever. However, if fever persists, it may indicate an infection in the areas surrounding the tooth, the gum, or the jaw bone structures. Fever and swelling mainly indicate the existence of an abscess. Dental abscesses can be treated by prescribing antibiotics and surgical drainage of the dental abscess. If the infection happens inside the pulp of the tooth, those procedures are recommended to be done inside the tooth, which is called endodontics drainage or ROOT CANAL THERAPY.
Broken or knocked-out teeth occur from trauma; the person may need an emergency hospital transfer by calling 111 if the trauma is massive and associated with other severe problems like loss of consciousness, jaw fractures, etc. Swallowed teeth and permanent tooth loss need dental emergency interactions. Tooth loss due to trauma has a different treatment approach in younger children who have lost their primary teeth than older children and adults with injury to their permanent teeth. If a permanent tooth is entirely knocked out, try to rinse it off gently, re-implant it as soon as possible, and call emergency dental care. If getting back it in place is not possible, preserve it in milk or even water and seek a dental emergency clinic.
Pain or Clicking on the jaw when the mouth is widely open would be a sign of damaged or inflamed TMJ.
Pain and Wisdom Teeth; when wisdom teeth (third molars) are growing and coming into the oral cavity or erupting, they cause gums inflammation around the exposed portion of the crown. The gum covering the crown may get infected. The pain may radiate to the jaw, nose and ear. There may be swelling and bulging in the affected area, which may cause a jaw malfunction, and it cannot be closed properly. In severe conditions, the patient may have difficulties swallowing and get pain in the floor of the mouth.
