Which is the bacterial infection. (Aren’t you glad I didn’t say tooth worms?)
You see, a toothache is usually caused when the pulp, the soft tissue inside a tooth, becomes extremely infected.
This is usually because the bacterial infection is near the nerve – agitating it.
So dealing with the pain is all well and good, but what you really want, what you really need, the thing that’ll make it go away for good, is to deal with the true cause – the infection.
Every hour you don’t deal with it? You know what’ll happen. It’ll gets worse and worse. And if you don’t deal with it, the situation could become life threatening, deadly even.
You see, the tooth could develop, what they call, “abscess,” which basically means the bacteria ends up coursing through your entire body.
Not good. Not good at all. You could die from it. People have.
