    Hi Allyoop7:

     

    I do feel it would be best for you to be evaluated by your physician or a dentist to determine if the pain is related to your teeth or something else. Is it an infection?  It is hard saying what it is without visually seeing and evaluating you. You benefit going through the interactive Symptom Checker, it may help direct you to the cause.

     

    Take care,

    Tara, RN
