Aching Jaw?

Aching Jaw In Decatur

Hi. I’m Dr. Stephanie Teichmiller, and today in the Decatur dentist blog, I want to look at some of the conditions that may result in jaw pain.

Jaw pain may be caused by sinusitis. Sinusitis is the inflammation of the tissues that line your sinuses, and when these tissues are inflamed, the sinuses exert pressure on surrounding areas. If the inflamed sinus is near the jaw, pain in the jaw joint may result. This commonly happens with a cold or allergies.

Many of my patients who come to me with jaw pain have some type of dental issue, such as an infection, or a problem in the temporomandibular joint (also known as TMJ).

In most cases, the source of jaw pain can easily be identified and treatment can begin from there. Remember, however, that jaw pain shouldn’t be ignored.
