Dentistry/Nasopalatine Nerve Pain


Dr Feminath wrote at 2013-01-30 05:34:56
Hello, in the first instance i feel it is neuralgic pain arising from nasopalatine nerve either denovo or due to compression from so thing like a cyst in the nasopalatine canal. Vitality test done in the upper front tooth would have eliminated tooth as the cause. Iopa taken in different angulation,occlusal radiograph or a cbct would have eliminated any pathology in nasopalatine duct. If these are not the reason try a course of carbamazapine maximum of 400 mg daily in divided dose to rule out neuralgia before further investigation
