How do you get a toothache?

It is mainly caused by problems in the tooth, gums, or jaw, such as cavities, gum disease, emerging of the third molar (wisdom tooth), a cracked tooth, infected pulp, jaw diseases, or exposed root. Often, this is achieved by poor oral hygiene, a natural growth among the teeth, or someone blows a punch on you. Mostly pain is because of the swelling of the blood vessels due to the viral infection, tooth sensitivity, or due to a third molar. Often dentists recommend Mefenamic Acid along with Antibiotics such as Amoxicillin both in 500mg. For pain killers dentists often recommend the safe Ibuprofen in 500mg.
