A toothache usually refer to pain around the teeth or jaws primarily as a result of a dental condition. In most instances, toothaches are caused by tooth problems, such as dental decay, injury, a cracked tooth, infection, exposed root, or gum disease.
However, disorders of the jaw joint can also cause pain that is referred to as "toothache". The severity of a tooth ache can be aggravated by chewing or by cold or heat. A thorough oral examination which includes dental x-rays, can help determine whether the toothache is coming from a tooth or jaw problem and the cause.
