Tooth Pain May Not Always Be Dental Related!

Did you know that toothaches can have a variety of causes and not all of them are actual dental issues?

You might find it interesting and informative to know some of these causes of tooth and jaw pain that are not related to the teeth!

1. Sinusitis and pressure in the nasal cavities and the air passages of the cheek bones can cause pain in the jawbone that may feel like a toothache.

2. Many people do not know that angina pain and some heart ailments can also cause jaw pain and/or tooth pain as well.

3. Occasionally, toothaches are caused by nerve ailments and neuralgia.

4. TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) can also cause chronic pain that is not related to a toothache.

It's never a bad idea to check with a doctor as well as a dentist in the event of unexplained tooth pain.

Keep smiling!
