Can wisdom teeth cause headaches when there's no pain from the teeth? I have 4 impacted wisdom. All fully developed.

Can wisdom teeth cause headaches when there's no pain from the teeth? I have 4 impacted wisdom. All fully developed.

Since: Since the wisdom teeth are impacted, either upright or askew (can't tell without an exam), if they are erupting, they can be putting pressure on the gum and bone tissue, which can manefest itself as a headache.

I once had a patient who had severe migranes. His physician could not find anything wrong wih him, and advised him to have a dental exam. After examining him, I advised him that he needed a root canal on an upper molar. He protested, claiming the tooth did not hurt him.

I asked him to allow me to show him. As his headache was killing him (but tooth was not hurting), I anesthetized him on that one tooth. As I was administering the injection, his headache stopped. I completed the root canal therapy and his headaches vanished.

Speak to an oral surgeon about extracting those teeth and hopefully your headaches will no longer be an issue. ...Read more
