If toothache is accompanied by facial swelling, please follow these guidelines.

Toothache can be excruciating, resulting in an inability to undertake normal activities such as eating and sleeping. An urgent appointment with a dentist should be made so that the cause of toothache can be identified and dealt with.

If toothache symptoms resolve it is still important to see a dentist as the symptoms are likely return with time if their cause is not treated.
