Could headaches and tooth pain be connected?


Answer by  Rose (6804)

Yes, headaches can be a result of an infection in one of your teeth or both could be caused by a sinus infection. You should seek medical attention if the pain does not go away within 24 hours and if it is accompanied by a fever or any other symptoms.

Most definitely, I had a temporary cap put on and developed an incapacitating headache in the back of my head. Doctors “MD’S” stated it was stress etc. and prescribed pain pills. Day came for permanent cap, temp came off, pain instantly went away but came back after permanent cap went on. I made the dentist root canal the tooth and headache went away. Yes, a bad tooth can cause terrible headaches.

One way they could be connected is by "referred pain." This is a shooting pain down a nerve in a location different than the source of the initial pain. I sometimes have a blast of pain in my tooth, and it shoots into my head very briefly.

Yes, headaches can be cause by dental problems. If the 'bite' is off, this causes tension in muscles and can produce a headache. Grinding teeth will also cause headaches.
