Can a toothache elevate your blood pressure

Customer Question

Can a toothache elevate your blood pressure

Yes potentially a tooth ache can temporarily raise blood pressure,
that would be temporary though, it would not cause a permanent blood pressure problem or a disease called hypertension - meaning high blood pressure
the pain in the tooth, causes your body to release adrenaline, and other neuro transmitters,
Stress on the other hand can increase blood pressure for a long time
once the tooth ache is reduced or relieved any transient change in blood pressure would be automatically reduced
