Toothaches causes
Toothaches can have many causes. Some of the causes are: gum disease, bruxism, tooth root sensitivity, etc.

The tooth root is usually buried in the jawbone. When gum disease develops, the bacteria that cause the disease can also dissolve the bone around the tooth root.

The combination of dissolved bone and receding gums means that more of the tooth root is exposed.

Without protection from healthy gums and healthy bone, the root often becomes sensitive to hot and cold and to sour foods. In some cases, the sensitivity is so severe that you may avoid very hot, cold or sour foods.

If the root exposure is not severe, try using a special toothpaste formulated for sensitive teeth that contains fluoride and other minerals. The extra fluoride and minerals will help to strengthen the exposed root and make it less sensitive.

The best way to manage root sensitivity and to prevent is to have a consistent oral care routine. You’ ll have to brush your teeth at least twice a day and to use dental floss.

Try a soft bristle toothbrush to avoid irritating your gums, which can increase the risk of root exposure and sensitivity.
