Re: Wisdom teeth - can they cause neck pain, facial pain & headaches?
It's hard to say if they are the cause of your problems... I had 4 wisdom teeth extracted 13 days ago. One turned out to be infected even though it never showed on any x-rays or routine exams. I suffered a pretty regular routing of lower neck pain, headaches and even swollen neck glands for no apparent reason. My physicals were always normal - nothing ever to indicate that my teeth were the cause. After having them removed I haven't had ANY neck pain, no more almost daily headaches, or swollen glands. Now, this could be the "placebo effect" kicking in, but I really think that my impacted/infected tooth was the culprit. It's just hard to tell if getting yours out will solve your problems, but it couldn't hurt!! Good luck.
