Understanding the Causes of Jaw Pain

Jaw pain can be caused by several issues and while you should speak with a dentist, it is nonetheless prudent to take a quick look at a few common conditions.

  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) will often cause pain within the jaw.
  • Regularly clenching or grinding your teeth can place additional stress upon the muscles.
  • There are times when gum disease can cause pain to radiate into the jaw.

“For any pain that lasts more than a few hours, or that happens on a recurring basis, seek medical attention.”
