At Smiles by Shields, we don’t see tooth pain as a mouth problem, we see it as a health concern! Check out our interactive tooth chart to see how meridians in the body reveal that tooth pain can indicate problems in other areas.
If you have discomfort with tooth 31, for example, it could indicate issues with your right lung, right side of your large intestines, or right side of your small intestines. The pain meridians mean that while the problem could stem from one area, the pain could be felt in another.
If you’re experiencing tooth pain, contact your Jacksonville FL dentist for details on how your oral health is linked with your total body wellness.
