Jaw Pain Causes

At Smile Studio Orthodontics, we are all about oral care and providing services for healthy, beautiful smiles! We are mouth centric and enjoy sharing all the interesting facts when it comes to your oral health. Today, we would like to discuss the common causes of jaw-pain to help build a better understanding.

Injury

Injury to the jaw is the most obvious cause, especially if you feel pain to the jaw after an incident.

Headaches

Jaw-pain accompanied by a headache behind or around your eyes means that you are experiencing cluster headaches.

Tooth Pain

If you are experiencing jaw-pain and can’t connect the pain with any other causes, then you may be suffering from a tooth abscess. Ask yourself “when was the last time I’ve visited a dentist.” If it’s been a while, then you may want to make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible.
