Hi. I’m Dr. Dale Behner, and today in the Fishers 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 following a cold or when someone suffers from allergies.
Many of my Fishers patients who come to me with jaw pain have some type of dental problem, such as an infection or a bit alignment problem.
The source of jaw pain can easily be identified at your Fishers dental office, and treatment can begin from there. But remember, jaw and tooth pain shouldn’t be ignored. Though it may sound scary, a root canal procedure is often a welcome relief because it stops patients’ tooth and jaw pain by removing and treating an infected tooth.
