Barodontalgia, commonly known as tooth squeeze and previously known as aerodontalgia, is a pain in tooth caused by a change in atmospheric pressure. The pain usually ceases at ground level.cite journal |author=Robichaud R, McNally ME |title=Barodontalgia as a differential diagnosis: symptoms and findings |journal=J Can Dent Assoc |volume=71 |issue=1 |pages=39–42 |year=2005 |month=January |pmid=15649340 |doi= |url=http://www.cda-adc.ca/jcda/vol-71/issue-1/39.html |accessdate=2008-07-19] [cite journal |author=Rauch JW |title=Barodontalgia--dental pain related to ambient pressure change |journal=Gen Dent |volume=33 |issue=4 |pages=313–5 |year=1985 |pmid=2863194 |doi= |url= |accessdate=] [cite journal |author=Weiner R |title=Barodontalgia: caught between the clouds and the waves |journal=J Mass Dent Soc |volume=51 |issue=3 |pages=46–9 |year=2002 |pmid=12380041 |doi= |url= |accessdate=] The most common victims are SCUBA divers (because in deep dives pressures can increase by several atmospheres) and military pilots (because of rapid changes).cite book |title=Bennett and Elliott's physiology and medicine of diving, 5th Rev ed. |last=Brubakk |first=A.

Barodontalgia prevalence was between 0.7% and 2% in the 1940s, and 0.3% in the 1960s.

Similarly, cases of barodontalgia were reported in 0.3% of high altitude-chamber simulations in the German Luftwaffe. [cite journal |author=Goethe WH, Bäter H, Laban C |title=Barodontalgia and barotrauma in the human teeth: findings in navy divers, frogmen, and submariners of the Federal Republic of Germany |journal=Mil Med |volume=154 |issue=10 |pages=491–5 |year=1989 |month=October |pmid=2515472 |doi= |url= |accessdate=]

The rate of barodontalgia was about 1 case per 100 flight-years in the Israeli Air Force. During War World II, about one-tenth of American aircrews had one or more episodes of barodontalgia.Reference needed In a recent study, 8.2% of 331 Israeli Air Force aircrews, reported at least one episode of barodontalgia.

Barodontalgia is a symptom of dental disease, for example inflammatory cyst in the mandible.

Classification
