Differences between earache and toothache

Can a bad tooth cause ear infection?

The ear, nose and mouth are all connected which is why earaches can result from dental problems. Ear infection symptoms can vary depending on where the infection is located. You might suffer from an earache and fever, or experience dizziness and nausea. However, there's one symptom you might not be aware is connected to the infection: tooth pain. When determining the cause of your pain, Dr. Maneet Ahlawat will examine your mouth, and discuss your symptoms and medical history with you.
