Pain in my face and mouth

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: jayanme  (9 years ago)
For the past week, I have had this pain on the left side of my face. My uncle who is a neurologist said it could be migraines and he put me on medication and it helped a while. Two days ago, the pain came back and I also started to have pain on the left side of my mouth. My wisdom tooth on this side of my mouth is tilted sideways and has a developing cavity. Could this be the cause of the pain in my face and mouth? I will be going to the dentist next week but I would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks.

Hello,
Your description does coincide with a wisdom tooth pain manifestation when it is cavitated and impacted. WIsdom tooth pain varies for people some experience severe localized pain, some see clinical signs such as swelling and tension, while others experience generalized pain around the facial area.

The dentist will most likely prescribe you a course of antibiotics and schedule you for an extraction.

Well, if you have an impacted wisdom tooth and you know it is decaying, this most likely has to be Pericoronitis that is causing the pain (atleast the one in your mouth). In any case, an extraction is unfortunately your best way out of this sticky situation. In the mean time, keep the area clean with warm salt-water rinses.
Good luck!
