A case of trigeminal neuralgia that occurred in the area of endodontically treated teeth is presented. The pain caused by trigeminal neuralgia may sometimes simulate the pain caused by edodontically involved teeth. However, the characteristic features of trigeminal neuralgia, such as intensity, duration and location of pain as well as triggering areas of pain should be used to differentiate trigeminal neuralgia from dental pain.
