Trigger points in the Temporalis, Masseter, Digastric or Buccinator can cause toothache! Mastr. & Bucc. are those jaw muscles between the mouth & ear - Dig. is under the jaw - Temp. starts at the hairline about eye-level curving a bit to just over your ear. Some massage with your fingers to each of these muscles for 15 seconds or more will relieve your pain if they are causing it. Usually you will be able to tell right away just at the touch - you'll find that the muscle is tight & hurts when you didn't even realize they were! 2 of my friends' tooth pain was alieviated this way! 1 had been to the Dentist AND Doctor - & they couldn't fix it! Get the Trigger Point Therapy Workbook by Clair Davies - its very easy to understand & you can fix your pains yourself!
