Will My Upper Tooth Extraction Cause Eye Problems..?
The most common fear among patients is impairment of eye sight after extraction (https://vdentalcare.in/blog/impaction/). Usually patients believe this is an absolute myth. That extraction of their upper tooth will lead to pain in the eye / visible disturbances, this belief is due to lack of proper awareness and dental education among people.
The fact is that…. Yearly, numerous patients undergo extraction of upper teeth without any complications. The reason being, the nerve supply of eyes and teeth is different. The eye is supplied by the branch of trigeminal nerve called as ophthalmic nerve, Whereas the teeth are supplied by maxillary branch & mandible nerve of trigeminal nerve. So, since the nerve supply is different there is no chance of visual impairment due to upper tooth extraction.
