Differences between earache and toothache

Can a toothache give you an earache?

The ear, nose and mouth are all connected which is why earaches can result from dental problems. 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. Nick Atanasiu & Dr. Diana Atanasiu will examine your mouth, and discuss your symptoms and medical history with you.

Symptoms of Toothache

From a cavity to infected gums, a sinus infection or too much exercise, a toothache can have a lot of causes.

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. Nick Atanasiu & Dr. Diana Atanasiu at Dentistry in the Valley .

Symptoms of Earache

Sinus pressure or pain can affect the roots of these teeth which gives the illusion that your tooth is aching

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.
