Dealing with a toothache is the worst thing ever, and damaged roots hurt like hell. What is even worse, the pain harasses you for days.
But, toothaches always bother you during weekends or special events. Sometimes you have to wait for ages before you schedule an appointment at your dentist’s.
Here are some of the most common causes of sudden headaches:
Incorrectly installed crowns
Obstructive sleep apnea
Temporomandibular joint disorder
Toothaches are absolutely treatable, and panicking is the last thing you should do. Always have a few natural solutions on hand, and you have nothing to worry about. Of course, these remedies should not replace your dentist’s treatment. Their goal is to help you bear the pain until you get some professional help.
