My Tooth Hurts.

This was a fun one.

Patient came in because their tooth hurts.

Exam:

“So does your tooth hurt when you bite down on it?”

“No.”

“So does it hurt when you drink hot or cold things?”

“No.”

“So when DOES it hurt?”

“Nah I dunno I mean like it’s almost like it’s connected to a nerve or something.”

. . . .

Yes . . teeth have nerves. . teeth are connected to tissue that is connected to nerves . . nerves are everywhere . . why is this so surprising to you. . .

Patients. . .
