Epilepsy caused by dentistry?

I had four teeth removed when I was ten years old with gas and air, which wasn't a very pleasant experience. Two weeks after I had my first seizure and have been having them ever since. I always thought there could be a link, especially as I continue to have jaw and head pain at the same part of my head as the epilepsy. Does anyone know if there could be a link?

Only just come across this post whilst looking up gas and air as I was given some for first time by the ambulance crew this week after having a bad fall but I was very apprehensive to do so. My mother was given gas and air when she gave birth to me....many years ago...almost 60.. and then I have been told that she then had her first seizure. My Father always said she was given too much as she passed out during having the gas and air. Then 6 months down the line she had teeth out with gas and air...and then had a mega seizure and was epileptic all her life.
Have you had any one else have a link between two?
