  • Can wisdom teeth pain cause ear pain?

    Yes, wisdom teeth or teeth, in general, can cause ear pain due to a possible infection. If you are experiencing any pain, it is always best to schedule an appointment with your dentist and have them take a look to rule out if the ear pain is correlated to wisdom teeth or a general cold. If you don't have a dentist, we are happy to extend our services to help with your particular situation. READ MORE

Dr. Griffin earned his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in 1998. Dr. Griffin is a member of the Chicago Dental Society. The mission of the Chicago Dental Society is “to improve the oral health care of the communities we serve by providing a source of funding for access to care programs and dental education.”

Dr. Griffin is a certified Invisalign® provider. Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that helps to straighten teeth without the use of the typical metal braces.

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists, like Dr. Griffin, are responsible for diagnosing oral diseases, as well as promoting oral health and disease prevention. Additionally, they look for abnormalities within the mouth such as lumps, swelling or discoloration, and perform necessary diagnostic procedures to diagnose and treat these abnormalities.
