Toothaches are no fun! Every now and then we get the kind of pain in our teeth that sends us howling to the dentist. Rarely, it is something we have no control over as most of the times it is something that can be evaded with a little care for our teeth. These causes can range from tooth decay and tooth abscess to tooth fracture and damage fillings to infected gums. This pain in the tooth/teeth is noticed by a constant throbbing and may be set off by food or drink.
