Toothache and Headache

Any tooth nerve is connected with the trigeminal nerve (system).

The question is:

If the toothache is on the left-hand side (quadrants 2 and 3), is the associated toothache also on the left-hand side only?

Accordingly with right-hand side (quadrants 1 and 4)?

That's what I appear to observe.

Yes, but sometimes you also get referred pain to the opposite side. It has been documented, since the entire nerve system is inter-connected. Left and right side.

Yep, I agree, some approaches may be too simple.

Often, in my case, headache almost completely replaces toothache (while being on anticonvulsants).

I speculate the above belief stems from the lack of frontal connection of the different nerve strands, they all connect in the back.

Hence, it is a very long path from, let's say, tooth 31 to tooth 41 or 11.
