What are the symptoms of a toothache?

Because the symptoms of a toothache may resemble other medical conditions or dental problems, it can be difficult to diagnose the cause without a complete evaluation by a dentist. 

If you notice pus near the source of the pain, your tooth may have become abscessed, causing the surrounding bone to become infected.  Or the pus could indicate gum disease, which usually is characterized by inflammation of the soft tissue and abnormal loss of bone surrounding the teeth.
