Headache and ear fullness

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: Molarpain  (9 years ago)
Dear all,

Nine months ago, during my dental appointment, the dentist told me my wisdom teeth on the top are rotting. One of them has a deep cavity. Due to financial problem and since I haven’t had any pain with the wisdom teeth at all, I put off my appointment with the oral surgeon. For the past six months, I have been experiencing on and off headache and ear fullness. Could the rotting wisdom teeth cause this? Will it go away once the wisdom teeth are extracted? Please help. Thank you.

Yes, there is a good chance the decayed tooth is causing it. Yes, there is a good chance it will resolve when you extract the tooth. Yes, there is a good chance you will land in the hospital if you don't quit procrastinating.

Why the heck are you spending the money to go to an oral surgeon? Most GPs extract wisdom teeth.
