This can be particularly distressing for anyone unfortunate enough to experience it. A full examination is required to ascertain likely causes. Dental infections can cause radiating pain, such that it is difficult for the patient to pinpoint where the pain is coming from.
Once the source of the pain has been diagnosed, appropriate treatment may be started to relieve your pain.
On rare occasions, you may be suffering from a pain of non-dental origin which may require referral to a specialist for further assessment.
