Common Causes of Toothache

Common Causes of Toothache

The most common cause of a toothache is a dental cavity as a result of tooth decay.

Causes of Tooth Decaying:

  1. Cracked tooth
  2. Dental filling, especially if deep or damaged
  3. Dental Sensitivity e.g, from gum disease, recession or tooth-wear.
  4. Gum disease and infections
  5. Tooth decay
  6. Nerve damage to teeth

Other problems that can cause toothache include:

  1. Impacted wisdom teeth
  2. Sinusitis
  3. Jaw problems (TMJ)
  4. Toothache after dental treatment


Dental cavities and toothache can be prevented by proper oral hygiene. Toothaches can be painful in the day, but they may seem to get worse at night. One reason that this may occur is that when a person is lying down, blood rushes to the head. This extra blood in the area may increase the pain and pressure that people feel from a toothache.
