Possible Problem

Sometimes pulp-damaged teeth cause pain in other parts of the head and neck. This is called referred pain it is often mild and can spread over a large area of your head, jaw, ear, and neck. There are other dental or medical problems that can cause similar symptoms as well. The endodontists at the Township Endodontic Centre are experts in evaluating such cases and determining if a damaged tooth is indeed the source of the problem.

What To Do

See your dentist or one of our endodontists at the Township Endodontic Centre for an evaluation. If we determine the problem is not related to a tooth we will refer you to the appropriate medical or dental specialist.
