Hello. : Hello. I can't diagnose your condition. However sometimes allergies, pain in your upper teeth & headaches can be associated with maxillary sinus congestion or infection. The pain from the sinuses (which are located in the cheek area) can radiate down into the teeth. Because you are having visual problems, you need to have this evaluated asap!

Though : Though there can occasionally be a relationship with dental problems and headaches, the symptoms you describe are probably not related to your tooth pain, especially since you are also experiencing vision problems. Dental pain can be caused by many things: decay, advancing gum disease, fractured teeth, joint disorders, muscle pain and lesions in the oral cavity. Without a clinical and radiographic exam it is impossible to make a diagnosis. I recommend that you see your physician to evaluate the headaches and vision changes then schedule an appointment with your dentist for a check-up.

May be coincidental: Crowded teeth will get more crowded w time, making it harder to clean. May have damage to bone/gums. May have worn or fractured teeth. So see your dentist and ask for referral to orthodontist to deal w malocclusion. There may be connection between malocclusion and headaches (tmj), but vision and postural problems are not due to crowding. So also see your physician. See both.

MD, DDS: See your DDS. Teeth can cause this pain. If teeth negative, see MD
