There are many possible reasons for toothaches.
They are an indicator that something is not right.
Depending on the reasons for your toothache you may only require a simple filling or in more extreme cases you may need a root canal.
If the pain you are experiencing is mild and sporadic the cause of your pain may be due to either tooth decay, sensitive roots from receded gums or a small crack in a tooth.
Again, this pain may be sporadic but slightly more intense than mild.
You may feel the pain when you are eating hot or cold foods.
Reasons for this pain may be abrasions on your teeth caused by brushing too hard with a hard or medium bristled toothbrush, more severe tooth decay, deeper cracks or even broken fillings.
