What Jaw Pain Could Mean

Posted on: July 20th, 2022 | Categories: Uncategorized

Having jaw pain is never fun, and it can cause complications with eating, drinking, and talking. There are many different explanations for jaw pain, including:

  • TMJ or TMD
  • Sinus problems
  • Toothache
  • Infections
  • Tooth grinding
  • Periodontal disease

Although a dentist cannot address all of these problems, they can help you set a treatment plan for some of them. For issues such as tooth grinding (also known as bruxism), your dentist may recommend a mouth guard or a night guard to put an end to your grinding. This takes pressure off the teeth and jaw.

For other issues your dentist might recommend root canal therapy, antibiotics, or even tooth extraction. Talk to your dentist if you are experiencing jaw pain because they can help ease your pain and find a way to treat and resolve the problem.
