1 doctor agrees

In brief: MD or DDS?

Could be what used to be called trigeminal neuralgia and this can often be diagnosed and treated by a specially trained neuromuscular dentist, although clearance from a neurologist/md is always a good idea at first.

In brief: Yes

I recommend seeing your neurologist as your having persistant pain that is not being relieved by medication that usually takes care of it.
Wishing you the best.
