Only a clinical examination can help in determining whether the cause of vertigo is due to dental or nondental causes. Most of the causes of vertigo are related to the brain or the inner ear, migraine headaches, acoustic neuromas, medication induced etc.Vertigo has not been reported as a side effect of dental work or dental anesthesia. The slightest possibility is that the dental treatment has caused your vertigo due to inflammation, nerve damage, or trauma. Stop any dental treatment at this time. In addition also reassess any medications you are taking that could be affecting you. Consult your dentist about it. Do keep me updated.
Take care and best regards!
