Upper Left Tooth Pain
Tooth Pain: These could be related or coincidental. If you have an infection from the tooth or gums (abscess for example) it could result in swollen glands and a sore throat. Also pain can refer in the mouth, so a lower tooth could be the problem as well. I would have a dentist check for infection, else see an md for the sore throat.

Had terrible toothache in upper left tooth. Pain went away after three days. X-rays-no root canal needed. Gums sore and cheek puffy. Root canal needed?

Swelling may be from a periodontal issue, so yes, in that case root canal may not be needed. More info necessary to make a proper diagnosis.

Severe tooth pain left side only, upper and lower. Reg xray, panoramic show nothing. Can an endodontist see anything different?

The tooth pain goes all the way up to my left temple. Could a wisdom tooth coming in cause this much pain?
Yes: The nerve that gives sensation to the wisdom teeth comes off of a nerve that gives sensation to the upper jaw and the area around the ear/temple/tmj area. Pain in the wisdom teeth can radiate to these other areas with "referred pain." some of my patients complain of this pain days after their wisdom teeth extractions. Pre-auricular pain could have other causes, however. Get it checked out. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
