It got me thinking about that question. I thought I’ll record this video to help you understand, will a toothache go away, and what happens if we ignore our toothaches? At the end of this video, I would love for you to know a little bit more about what happens to toothaches that are ignored.
I guess the question, will the toothache go away? Sometimes teeth will start to be a little bit sore due to a bit of sensitivity. Sometimes it can be a change in toothbrush or toothpaste or a change in weather. It can be a short-lived sensitivity to cold that is short-lasting and it disappears.
However, throbbing, aching tooth pain will not disappear and often it will progress and become much worse. Toothaches, where a nerve has become unhappy in an irreversible manner, will continue to get worse until abscess forms. In one sense, once the abscess forms, sometimes the pain actually disappears for a while, but if we ignored that tooth with the abscess in it, one day, sometimes it’s in the short term, sometimes it’s in a really long term that infection can flare up in a really significant way and sometimes that can result in facial swelling and some really unsafe health outcomes as well to ignoring those infections.
Generally speaking, if you have a short, sharp discomfort, like the first one I described, it’s best to get that checked, make sure it’s nothing serious and make sure it’s nothing that’s going to progress because unfortunately, a toothache can progress and often teeth don’t start to cause issues until things have gotten quite bad.
