Jaw pain can have a lot of different causes. It can be sudden and throbbing, or start out mild and gradually get worse. In order to treat your jaw, we have to figure out the underlying problem so it doesn’t become a dental emergency.


Your hurting jaw

Jaw pain is often a result of grinding your teeth. Many people do this unknowingly at night while they’re sleeping, but others may do it as a result of stress. Cavities, an abscess, or gum disease can also cause jaw pain. It may also be a sign of a problem with the muscles or nerves of the jaws and face, most specifically the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

What is TMJ?

The TMJ is a joint that connects your jaw to your skull. TMJ disorders cause pain in this jaw joint, as well as the surrounding muscles that help control how your jaw moves. In these cases, TMJ dentistry can help you choose a treatment plan for your aching jaw. It may involve medication, pain relievers, bite guards, physical therapy, injections, or even surgery to replace or repair the joint.
