Earaches are often caused by fluids in the eardrum, inflammation or cold and flu, whereas toothaches may be caused by bacteria, cavities, gum disease or tooth injuries. Ear infection symptoms can vary depending on where the infection is located. You might suffer from an earache and fever, or experience dizziness and nausea. However, there's one symptom you might not be aware is connected to the infection: tooth pain. When determining the cause of your pain, Dr. Michael Handler will examine your mouth, and discuss your symptoms and medical history with you.
Symptoms of a toothache can include tooth discomfort, an aching sensation after you’ve eaten or consumed a hot/cold beverage, bad breath (halitosis), fever, swollen glands, and earaches. Make sure to consult Dr. Michael Handler at Dr. Michael Handler Dentistry .
The signs of earaches and toothaches correlate, and this is mostly due to the fact that the sinuses are situated very close to the top of your back teeth. Some discomfort or pain in the sinuses may cause these teeth and create the feeling of a toothache when it could be your ear that is really causing you pain.
