Have what i believe to be a tonsil papilloma experiencing earache, tooth pain night sweats sore throat hoarse voice..Reason to worry it's cancer?

Interesting: Tonsil papillomas are viral infections, but they do not explain the tooth pain. Hpv types 6, 8, 11, and 13 are known to increase cancer risk. Your symptoms as indicated do not indicate cancer, but typing the kind you have and going for biannual oral cancer screenings are wise in order to prevent or identify early conditions. The tooth pain could be something else. Get evaluated by a dentist. ...Read more

Possible masseter muscle in cheek strain after dentist? 3 wk constant meds.headache tooth pain ear pain. Wisd.tooth RCT & 4 fillings. Cause of pain?

Inflammation: You may have an inflamed masseter from being stretched open too long or too wide; you could also have trismus from the anesthetic injection. Other possibilities include the occlusion being off on the new restorations. Moist heat, restricted diet and anti-inflammatories should resolve muscle pain; if the bite is off you need an occlusal adjustment. ...Read more

5 days after two fillings and two novacaine shots I am in awful jaw and ear pain. Dentist said i don't need a root canal. Is it jaw or tooth pain?

Filling could be "high, " nerve of tooth could be slowly dying, could be jaw joint involvement, could be so many other things. Go back for reevaluation. ...Read more

What could be causing ear pain, teeth pain, and a migraine?

What could be causing ear pain, teeth pain, and a migraine?

Bite problem: A bad bite. Can cause all of these symptoms as well as tooth grinding or clenching. It is not enough to say they're caused by grinding. The bigger question is, why are you grinding? Any treatment that does not stop the grinding will protect the teeth but not deal with the migraines and other symptoms. Migraines are muscle problems. An orthosis that relaxes muscles is the best solution. ...Read more
