A sign of advanced tooth decay, toothache occurs when the decay has extended to a nerve.
A proper diet is necessary for the development of sound teeth, especially sufficient Calcium, and vitamins D and C. Regular cleansing, flossing, and semiannual dental examinations are important in preventing Dental Caries, toothache, and gum disorders.
Tooth decay is not inevitable and requires an underlying bacterial disease, spurred on by poor oral hygiene and a diet rich in sweet, sticky foods that encourage the development of plaque.
(See also: Periodontal disease)
A dentist should always be consulted in the case of severe or recurrent toothache. However, homoeopathic medicines can be very useful as first aid and may settle the problem completely.
