How Toothache and Headache Are Related?

How Toothache and Headache Are Related?

One of the main reasons of a severe headache is a prolonged toothache. Toothaches are extremely painful and can prevent you from enjoying your food. It becomes difficult to speak if toothache is unbearable.

Causes of Toothache:

  1. Tooth decay.

  2. Tooth fracture resulting from an accident.

  3. A painful infection at the root of your teeth or your gums. This is known as tooth abscess.

  4. Chewing gum continuously and grinding the teeth.

How does toothache cause headache?

Sometimes, a tooth becomes very inflamed and since the nerve endings are connected to the brain, this, in turn makes the pain travel to different parts of your head. Generally, people with bad cavities or caries have major headaches and migraines.

The inside of a tooth consists of a pulp. This pulp can get infected. If this tooth happens to lie in the upper jaw, then the pain is transferred to the head which can cause a severe headache.

Headaches can also be caused by TMJD (Temporomandibular joint dysfunction). This usually occurs spreading from the face, jawline and neck right up to the head. In extreme cases, the jaws might be locked up and it makes clicking or grinding noises. Misalignment of the teeth can be a cause by TMJD which in turn affects the head greatly.

Treatments:

  1. If you are detected with TMJD, your jaws need to be healed, first thing you should do is to visit an expert dentist in order to get the underlying cause of toothache treated. It is always recommended to get a proper treatment started, do not emphasize the use of self-medications.
  2. If the headache persists due to toothache, it is advisable to take a painkiller as prescribed by your dentist.
  3. Use an ice pack or a towel dipped in cold icy water, and hold it against the area of toothache. Do not put ice directly on your tooth as it might increase the pain ten folds due to tooth sensitivity.
  4. You can also apply numbing gel so that your tooth stops hurting. This in turn, will make your headache reduce.
  5. Toothache is also caused by small amounts of food which get stuck inside your teeth or between your gums, so it is necessary to clean your teeth thoroughly and floss it regularly to avoid toothache.
  6. Avoid chocolates and sweets. If you still get a cavity, you should visit your dentist immediately.
  7. Dental abscess also causes headache. In this situation, a root canal treatment is recommended.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Or / and deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening procedures you may consult me in person too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

I had problem after rct & crown fitting, sometimes there is pain on that teeth area.

I had problem after rct & crown fitting, sometimes there is pain on that teeth area.
There is a chance that the tooth in which rct has been done is slight tender for few days but if the pain persists then probably the infection hasn't gone totally, you need to bring this to your dentist's knowledge and let him assess and take next step.

yes tmds can cause tinnitus and headaches but definitely not blurred vision. cause can be varying from attrition to irregular bite( malocclusion). in such conditions splints play significant role.

Hii I am 16 years old boy. My lower canines teeth are having gap inb/w them and my teeth always remains pale yellow. ...
Hi lybrate-user. You have a very genuine and interesting query. You have mentioned 2 problems 1. Space between the canine can be treated by various means. Orthodontics (braces) can be done which wud be the best and ideal way. Or even tooth coloured filling can be done. But considering your age my suggestion wud be to go for braces. 2, second issue was your pale yellow canines. Naturally the canines are the only tooth in the mouth having highest chroma (which means they are naturally yellowish compared to the teeth infront and behind them) so there's nothing to worry about it and none of the tooth pastes will change the colour. Yes it might be bit more yellowish if you compare with your frens. That's the mother natures play. And moreover if your skin complexion is fair, the chances of the canines being yellowish is increasd. If your pupils are brownish them the canines being yellow is higher. So nothing to worry about if. Leave it the way it is. Unless it's very yellow for which I might have to have a look at your pic

Please do not think about it now as you cannot change the situation and trust your own natural immunity to take care of healing. Continue with your antibiotics and pain killers. If pain persists/ whitish appearance arises with bad smell- visit a good dentist immediately.

The prognosis of advanced tongue cancer is quite poor. If need be a nasogastric tube can be inserted through nose for feeding or a PEG tube which is Inserted into stomach endoscopically. His nutrition and energy should improve with the tube feeds. Do check his electrolytes (sodium and potassium) as they may be deranged due to decreased food intake. I hope that the tumor is inoperable or metastatic hence we are not offering curative resection which gives about 50% survival. Also the life may be prolonged in locally advanced cancers of tongue by using chemotherapy or chemoradiation. Also immunotherapy with nivolumab is an option for those who can afford it (2Lac / month) which has shown to have good responses. For those who cannot afford it, metronomic chemotherapy is a good option. I hope I was able to solve your queries. Feel free to contact me if you want to discuss further or share the reports.
