Most cases of dental pain are due to cavity, a cracked or fractured tooth, an exposed tooth root or gum disease. The management of each one is different. I would advice that your mother see her dentist for further management. In the meantime she can relieve the toothache with over the counter pain medications such as advil or motrin. I hope this helps, take care.
