Toothaches that Won't Go Away
A persistent toothache may be an indication of an underlying problem. If your tooth does not have a hole in it, the root may be filled with abscess and the inflammation causes the pain you are experiencing.
If this happens, it is better to have it checked by our dentists as they can provide you with the needed solution, whether it needs to be extracted or have the cavity filled. Although prevention is better than cure, if the problem already exists, your toothache will not go away unless you have it checked by the dentist.
