A lot of our patients here in San Antonio suffer from one form or another of jaw pain. In some cases it is easily corrected, while others need a more intensive approach.
Jaw pain may be caused by sinusitis, the inflammation of the tissues that line your sinuses. 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 our San Antonio patients with jaw pain have some type of dental issue, such as an infection, or a problem in the temporomandibular joint (also known as TMJ).
The source of jaw pain can easily be identified at your San Antonio dental office, and treatment can begin from there. But remember, jaw pain shouldn’t be ignored.
