    A toothache is a pain in or around a tooth that may be caused by:
    -Tooth decay
    -Abscessed tooth
    -Tooth fracture
    -A damaged filling
    -Repetitive motions, such as grinding teeth
    -Infected gums
    Symptoms of a toothache may include:
    Tooth pain that may be sharp, throbbing, or constant. In some people, pain results only when pressure is applied to the tooth.
    Swelling around the tooth
    Fever or headache
    Foul-tasting drainage from the infected tooth
    If you have all these symptoms consult your nearest dentist as soon as possible for further investigations and treatment.
