When it comes to a striking toothache, remember the first thing to do is to always talk to Dr. Elezi and Dr. Crabtree right away. That is so your doctor can identify the cause and source of the problem. Toothaches are caused by many situations such as accidents, exposed root, cracked or chipped teeth, cavities, gum disease, and other situations that may need to be addressed quickly.
