Can dental pain cause upper jaw and ear pain?


Answer by  SunnyStars (836)

Dental pain is usually the result of some type of tooth trauma that has caused an infection. Infection and pain can spread to your upper jaw and cause ear pain.

I absolutely know this to be true. When I have had an abscess tooth, the gum swells, and makes the jaw ache very much. It also feels like I have an ear infection. When having a broken tooth, the cold gets in there, and the same results occur for me. Very painful from the chin up!

Yes, any sort of pain in a general area can effect the rest of that area. If you are having dental pain, that may be causing your jaw to have to in a different way, causing pain.
