Pain in the teeth should not take place if proper analgesics are administered after Rhinoplasty. You should take proper pain killer tablets and in the proper amount. You can take Diclofenac Sodium 2-3 times daily to get rid of the pain. If you still feel pain after this, then you should consult your surgeon for a check up on possible hematoma or any other problem.

There is a nerve called the inferior alveolar nerve that runs close by the nose and supplies the teeth. Injury of that nerve might cause the pain in the teeth. If the condition does not improve within 2 weeks, please seek a specialist.

After Rhinoplasty one should not have pain in teeth . If your child is taking analgesic it should be minimal. Although teeth and external nose has same nerve supply. You should consult with dental surgeon and get it examined because it may be because of dental problem.thanks

Dear madam in very susceptible persons may have dental neuralgias after surgery. Usually resolve quickly in 7 - 10 days with use of normal anti-inflammatory. If pain persists I suggest a dental examination to find the cause of pain. Sincerely Walter

Hello, if during rhinoplasty was done also a septoplasty (including the vomer bone from the septum) , you may have some pain in the upper teeth and palate of the mouth, it's not a problem, and it's pretty common, that will resolve spontaneously over time over a couple of weeks. Just take some pain killers like ketoprofen , give it some more time and relax.

Dear Caron,
After a full rihnoplasty including septum such symptoms are likely to occur because the nerves go through this area which is under inflammatory process now. Your surgeon should have prescribed analgesic for the postoperative period. In the first two weeks the use of antiinflammatory should reduce the swelling and the pain. If this situation persists or if you see no improvement you should get your child checked out. Anyway you should go visit your surgeon regularly in the postoperative period so as to keep you under observation and to avoid risks like hematoma, infection or other complications. You can always visit your dentist too for a dental check up if the cause is different. Your surgeon will consult you and will give you proper indications.

Kind regards,

Hi Caron. It may possibly happen due to hypersensitivity. It should settle by itself usually.

Pain in the teeth is uncommon after a routine rhinoplasty. However there are some common nerve supply between the lower part of the nose and the upper teeth. So there is a possibility of nerve irritation from the surgery. I would expect that to gradually get better. If unsure, please see a dentist to make sure that the teeth/gum are OK.
