Differences between earache and toothache

Can a bad tooth cause ear infection?

Earache and toothache can have similar symptoms for a lot of people and it could be hard to identify. 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, our doctors 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 our doctors at Solar Dental .

Symptoms of Earache

Symptoms of an earache can include pain in or around the ear, fever, loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping, sinus problems, hearing difficulty, and trouble balancing.

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.
