2 separate problems: These are two separate conditions: 1. Toothache, see your dentist for exam, x-rays and treatment. 2. Knee pain see your PCP for evaluation, imaging and referral or treatment. Good luck.

Face fracture: may have caused injury to a nerve in the face that also travels to the teeth. As time from the trauma increases the pain should improve. If really bad ask your surgeon if she recommends additional treatment or medication.
