A cavity is a little hole in your tooth caused basically by the germs which produce a slick and slimy substance that causes a cavity in your tooth thus leading to toothache. the cavities caused should be taken care of as soon as possible because if not taken care of will grow in size thus creating more problems for your teeth.
An Abscessed Tooth is related to a cavity itself, an untreated cavity causes the damage to spread deeper into out tooth thus effecting the nerve of the tooth which if also called dental pulp that is now infected causing severe toothache.
Dental injuries are of many types and are caused by different reasons causing severe toothache depending upon the reason. A dental injury is caused by a blow to your mouth either by a fall or any other major accident causing a tooth to chip away or many teeth broken at a time causing severe toothache
Gum disease is a kind of chronic inflammation and infection of the gums and the tissue surrounding it. It is the major cause of tooth loss in 80% of the adults affecting 3 out of 4 people at a point. The common kind of gum diseases is gingivitis & periodontitis.
The filling is done for a cracked tooth. When a tooth is cracked it is treated by filling up the crack to prevent the tooth from further damage. Over the time, the filling withers away or is damaged which can be a major cause for toothache and should be taken care of immediately which otherwise can be a cause of severe and unbearable toothache.
These are the major factors causing toothache mainly in adults. So to have healthy gum and teeth, we should avoid such circumstances and if in any case any problem appears anyway immediately take care of it to avoid further damage.
