Dental Hygiene

Don`t know what is wrong

Question:

Would dental infections cause vision problems like ghosting? Also would if cause swelling in my eyes and pain across my face. Like the eye and nose area? thank you

Answer:

Dental infections seldom cause vision problems.  Tooth pain can be referred (transferred or moved) to other areas of the face sometimes.  Dental infections can cause short-term swelling of the face.  I suggest you consult your local dentist.
