Hi ,the type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem.
â¢If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling.
â¢If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed. You may also consult me in person.
