Abstract

Orofacial pain has been associated with many systemic diseases including some cardiac problems. Here we have discussed a case where the patient’s tooth ache was the only presenting complaint for an undetected atrial septal defect. This is to focus attention to the fact that any unexplained orofacial pain could be an indication for some undiagnosed condition and also highlight the critical role of a dentist in patient education and recognition of tooth ache as a possible cause of undetected congenital cardiac problems.
