The body is a complex system and each organ in it is associated with each other. Sometimes even the things which seem to you unrelated are actually connected with something else in the body. In this case we shall concentrate on the teeth. Namely, even the smallest tooth in your mouth is connected with some internal organ. The upper and lower incisors are linked to the bladder, ears and kidneys, the canine teeth are related to the liver and gallbladder. According to experts, the premolars present the states of the lung, the molars are connected to the health of the pancreas, spleen and stomach, and the wisdom teeth are linked to the small intestine and the heart.

This type of pain is called phantom pain and it appears due to the message that the affected organ sends to the corresponding tooth.
