That Toothache is Telling You Something
A sharp pain when chewing, or increased sensitivity to pressure means you should act fast. When a tooth becomes severely decayed, cracked, or damaged by trauma, the pulp of the tooth can become infected or inflamed, causing real discomfort. If the tooth is infected, there is also a chance that the infection with cause abscess at its root which can cause facial swelling, drainage problems, and eventually lead to bone loss.
Delaying treatment for a toothache increases the chances of losing the tooth entirely.
