Hi there,I am an experienced Medical Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Dental infection is quite possible.
However, given the distribution pain, this can be a nerve related problem.
Trigeminal neuralgia for example can be caused by nerve injury or viral infection.
This can cause severe radiating pain mainly triggered by chewing or laughing.
Although, cocodamol helps with the pain, nerve specific medication called Gabapentin 300 mg 3 times daily or Oxcarbazapine 600 mg twice daily may work better.
Best wishes,Please reply back if you need any further clarification.It was my pleasure to help you today.
