Once upon a time there was the tooth III

Posted by Dental News Team am 22, Mar - 2011

zahnodyssee_iiiToothache 3/5

Maybe you don’t have a toothache, but your face kind of hurts, or is this a case of trigeminal neuralgia?!

The colleague comes to the rescue
The dentist has no idea what to do, most of the teeth have been removed, only some are left, but the pain is still there. The ear, nose and throat specialist was not informed about these goings-on, but is faced with an anxious patient who has lost their faith in the system, and not being able to find a specific cause, takes a crack at a diagnosis – a trigeminal neuralgia.

A neurologist of course rejects this, and surmises a case of atypical facial pain. And so the patient starts „doctor-hopping“, a plethora of diagnoses, but no end to the pain. Everything is falling apart, you’re turning into a nervous wreck, and maybe even getting depressed?


You’re willing to try just about anything, even homeopathic treatment and other types of “alternative” medicine – with no guarantee of success!

You can no longer tell where exactly the pain is coming from, maybe there are still a few teeth left, maybe your mother and grandmother also had problems with their teeth, so what’s to stop that from happening to you?!

Stay tuned for: Once upon a time there was the tooth IV
