About Vertigo & Dizziness

Common Symptoms of Toothaches
There are several different symptoms related to toothaches. Most patients experience swelling, throbbing, sore jaw, headaches, gum tenderness, and dizziness. It is also common to experience dizziness after teeth extractions, and root canals. So if you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact our office immediately.
Infections are the major cause of patients suffering from vertigo and dizziness. Some infections can be caused by a part of something bigger, such as the recovery time after an extraction, or a root canal. However, a tooth infection can indicate a more serious issue that needs to be addressed immediately. An abscessed tooth for example, is one of the most common concerns related to dental infections. Most patients will need a root canal if they have an abscessed tooth. Abscessed teeth will normally cause fluid to fill around the inner ear. The inner ear is responsible for controlling balance, and it is a common reason why patients experience dizziness. Severe tooth infections normally spread to the ear nerves.
Additional Tooth Infection Symptoms
While most patients complain about dealing with dizziness and ear pain, there are other symptoms related to tooth infections that a lot of people experience, as well:
- Tooth sensitivity to hot and cold
- Gum and face swelling
- Throbbing pain
When you visit our office, we will review your medical history to determine if you have particular health concerns that need to be addressed, as they could be causing you to deal with vertigo and dizziness.
