Tooth pain is mostly caused because of a tooth infection, if your tooth is cracked, or you have a leaky filling or a cavity, it becomes easy for bacteria to get into your tooth and cause infection in the pulp which is in the centre of the tooth.
Sometimes when you get a toothache, you may have red and swollen gum around the tooth. There are also chances that you might have a bad breath or a horrible taste.
