Upper left jaw pain near ear: The request could not be satisfied


Jaw Pain: Why Does It Hurt On One Side

Jaw Pain on Left Side or Right Side of Your Jaw

Are you noticing that you have jaw pain on one side when you wake up in the morning? Or perhaps you’re experiencing jaw pain on both sides or one side (the left side or right side) of your jaw during the day. Whether you’re trying to concentrate at work, hanging out with friends and family or relaxing at home, there is nothing more distracting and irritating than to be experiencing jaw pain on a daily basis. However, there are many causes of jaw pain so if you’re seeking to treat the issue it’s important to diagnose the reasons behind why you’re experiencing such pain. Your jaw can be more delicate than you might realise which is why any clenching or overactivity can lead to discomfort and jaw pain on one side of your jaw.

The Anatomy of The Jaw

The jaw refers to each of the upper and lower bony structures in vertebrates that form the framework of the mouth and act as receptacles for the teeth. Jaw pain tends to be associated with the lower jaw, or mandible, which is the strongest bone in the face. It articulates on either side with the temporal bone to form the temporomandibular joint, often abbreviated to TMJ. The TMJ is a hinge joint that allows you to do everyday tasks such as eat, swallow, talk and yawn. Problems with this area can cause soreness of the jaw and knowledge of this anatomy helps in the correct diagnosis of jaw pain, whether it be mild or severe.

Common Causes Of Jaw Pain On One Side

1. TMD

Temporomandibular disorders, also known as TMD or TMJ disorders, refers to a disorder that causes these joints and the hinge muscle discussed above to function improperly. It is characterised by the clicking or popping of the jaw and difficulty opening the mouth. You may feel pain and tenderness of the jaw, aching around the ears and your jaw may hurt while chewing or swallowing.

2. Bruxism

Bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding, is one of the leading causes of jaw pain. Bruxism refers to the grinding or clenching of the teeth that serves no function, so it is not associated with chewing or eating. A lot of sufferers grind their teeth in their sleep and these leads to severe damage and destruction of the teeth, infections in the gums and fatigued jaw joints. Nighttime grinding is worse than during the day because your protective reflexes turn off while you’re asleep, meaning that the grinding can be a lot more severe. Most people will wake up with jaw pain or discomfort, sometimes on one side (either the left side or the right side) of their face. Stress and anxiety as well as stimulants like drugs and caffeine, are the main causes of teeth grinding.

3. Osteomyelitis

Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone caused by a bacteria, that travels through the body’s bloodstream and can affect both bones and tissue. Osteomyelitis of the jaw impacts the TMJ and leads to jaw pain, facial swelling and fever. Usually the infection is the result of the bacteria entering the body because of poor oral hygiene, following an oral surgery or procedure or due to a jaw fracture. It is more common in men than women and usually occurs in the mandible (lower jaw bone) rather than the maxilla.

4. An Abscessed Tooth

An abscessed tooth is another common cause of jaw and facial pain. These occur when the dental pulp, containing nerves, tissue and blood vessels, is exposed and and gets infected as a result. This infection then spreads to the gum and bone and leads to pain in the entire oral cavity as well as the jaw.

Immediate Pain Relief Remedies for Jaw Pain

1. Heat or Ice Packs

Applying a heated pad or ice pack to the affected area for ten minutes, then taking it off and reapplying it, can help to soothe the pain of a sore jaw. Heat helps to relax an overactive jaw muscle while the cold helps to reduce swelling.

2. Pain Relief Medication

Pain relievers such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen can help to reduce your discomfort throughout the day.

3. Massage Therapy

Massaging the muscles of the jaw can help to relieve tension in the area and soothe fatigued muscles and joints. Use your index and middle fingers to rub sore areas in a circular motion. Massaging the neck may also help.

Long-Term Preventative Strategies

The best prevention method is dependant on the cause of your jaw pain. For example, if you’re suffering from osteomyelitis it is likely you’ll need antibiotics to get rid of the infection.

1. Wear A Nightguard

Investing in a nightguard can help to ensure that you don’t grind or clench your teeth while asleep which will prevent you feeling jaw pain in the morning and throughout the day. It serves as a protective tool for your teeth and can help reduce how often you grind your teeth in the long-term.  You should always consult your dentist to determine the correct treatment for your jaw pain.  Depending on your condition, your dentist can recommend the best treatment: for example, a bruxism night guard or a TMJ mouth guard.

2. Reduce Stress

Both TMDs and teeth grinding are related to stress and anxiety. As a result, reducing your everyday stress and learning stress-management techniques can have an impact on the amount of jaw pain you experience. Meditation, mindfulness, regular exercise and spending time with loved ones can help to reduce stress.

3. Visit Your Dentist Regularly

Regular check-ups to your dentist helps to keep your teeth, gum and jaw in great condition and will prevent any potential oral problems that arise from getting any worse. If you ever experience unusually severe tooth or jaw pain on one side, or if something doesn’t feel quite right in that area, make sure to schedule an appointment. Tooth extraction or a root canal procedure may be necessary in some cases.

If you’re experiencing jaw pain on one side, don’t suffer in silence. We need to use a jaw everyday and so if it becomes sore or painful, it’s vital that you do something about it.

Why Does My Jaw Hurt So Much?

The jaw is one of those body parts that’s easy to take for granted until it hurts—and then it’s all you can think about. When jaw pain makes it difficult to chew, talk, or move due to shock-like sensations, sharp stabs, or a dull ache that just won’t go away, it can be concerning and life-disrupting.

One form of jaw pain to take very seriously is pulsating, hard-to-pinpoint pain in the side of your jaw, which could indicate—of all things—a heart attack. “Similar to the pain that a patient can experience in the left arm during a heart attack, this pain can also move into the lower corner of the jaw below the ear,” explains Isabel Moreno Hay, D.D.S., Ph.D., division chief and program director of the Orofacial Pain Program and assistant professor in the College of Dentistry at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. Because it can be life-threatening, if your jaw pain comes along with other symptoms of a heart attack like dizziness, shortness of breath, cold sweats, or indigestion, seek medical attention immediately.

Otherwise, reasons for jaw pain are often easy to identify. “Toothaches are the most common cause of face pain, followed by temporomandibular disorders,” says Dr. Moreno Hay. Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) cause pain and discomfort in your temporomandibular joints (TMJ), the moving hinges located in front of your ears that connect your jawbone to your skull and allow you to open and close your mouth, chew, and clench your teeth.

While mild jaw pain can sometimes be managed with self-care measures like applying a moist, warm towel or cold compress to the area, if the pain is persistent or you can’t open or close your jaw completely, it’s time to call a doctor or dentist. Be prepared to talk about where you’re having pain, how long you’ve been having it, what seems to trigger it, and any other symptoms you’ve been having in your head, mouth, ears, or neck, says Dr. Moreno Hay. After an exam of your jaw joints, muscles, and mouth, you may need an x-rays, MRI, CT scan, other tests, or a referral to a specialist for a definitive diagnosis.

In the meantime, you can get an idea of what might be going on with your face by perusing these jaw pain causes below, ranging from the most common culprits to rare but possible explanations.

1. Something’s wrong with your teeth.

Many common dental problems like cavities, an infected tooth, or gum disease can cause pain in your teeth, gums, or jaw, says Dr. Moreno Hay. If you’re experiencing throbbing tooth or gum pain that’s worse with exposure to cold or hot foods or drinks, the sooner you can see a dentist the better, as many of these issues tend to get harder (and more expensive) to treat over time.

After a dental exam, you may need x-rays as well as advanced teeth cleaning, antibiotics, prescription mouthwashes or gels, a root canal, or surgery to get relief from a toothache or gum condition. From then on, oral hygiene practices like regular brushing, flossing, and dental visits can help keep jaw pain at bay.

2. You have a TMJ disorder.

TMJ disorders may affect about 5 to 12% of people around the world, and women are twice as likely to suffer from them compared to men. Interestingly, unlike many other chronic pain conditions, TMJ disorders are more common in younger people, per the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR).

If you’re dealing with a TMJ disorder, something is off either with the joints or muscles that move your jaw. You might experience pain in front of your ear when you chew, talk, or move your jaw as well as clicking or popping noises, earaches, headaches in your temples, or difficulty moving your jaw whatsoever, says Dr. Moreno Hay.

TMJ disorders can arise for a slew of different reasons including recent injury, overuse (say, due to chewing gum), arthritis, teeth grinding, or misalignment of your jaw. If you’ve been particularly stressed out lately, that can make symptoms of TMJ worse, too. A chat about your health history as well as a physical exam and x-rays can help a doctor or dentist diagnose you with a TMJ disorder.

You can often ease TMJ pain with conservative treatments like eating soft foods, applying hot and cold compresses, learning how to avoid triggers like clenching your teeth, and taking anti-inflammatory and pain medications as directed by your doctor, says Dr. Moreno Hay. Because more research is needed on the safety and effectiveness of more aggressive treatment options like surgery, splints, and dental adjustments, it’s important to meet with an orofacial pain specialist in order to figure out the best treatment plan for you.

3. You’re stressed to the max.

“It is not uncommon for people who are under stress to naturally respond by clenching their teeth,” says Dr. Moreno Hay. Been there? Teeth grinding and clenching (a.k.a. bruxism) at night and during the day can make your jaw muscles feel tender and sore. In more severe cases, you might also have pain from damage to your chompers.

Often, you can relieve jaw pain from grinding your teeth by wearing a mouthguard at night, checking in with yourself to stop clenching throughout the day, and practicing relaxation techniques like meditation or breathing exercises before bed. But if you’re experiencing significant pain or additional symptoms, your dentist might need to repair damaged teeth or recommend a visit to a therapist or sleep specialist to treat potential underlying causes, like an anxiety disorder or a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea.

4. Your sinuses are acting up.

If you’re prone to sinus infections or sinusitis, you know the biggest sign is that you can’t breathe through your nose, but jaw pain could also be an unexpected symptom. When your sinuses (the hollow arrears in your skull and face bones) swell up, they can cause pressure and pain in your cheekbone, upper jaw, or upper molars, and headaches that are aggravated when you move your head around, says Dr. Moreno Hay.

The best cure tends to be time. If it’s been over a week and a half and self-care measures like drinking lots of fluids, breathing in steam, and taking OTC pain relievers like acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofen (Advil) aren’t cutting it or you’ve had a fever for a few days, contact a doctor. Usually, antibiotics aren’t necessary. However, you may need a referral to an ear, nose, and throat specialist (ENT) to treat underlying issues such as allergies or nasal polyps (non-cancerous growths).

5. Arthritis might be wearing away at your joints.

Notice an eerie crunching or grinding sound when you move your jaw? “Arthritis can affect any joint of the body including the TMJ,” says Dr. Moreno Hay. “The reason why an arthritic joint may make a grating noise is because the joint surfaces wear down and during movement there’s an increase in friction between bones.” You might also experience other symptoms of arthritis like stiffness, swelling, and pain in front of your ear or earaches.

Osteoarthritis causes cartilage, the flexible tissue that allows joints to move smoothly, to break down over time and typically strikes the hands, knees, hips, and spine first. While it’s more common in older people, jaw injuries or infections could speed up the process. It’s diagnosed with an exam and sometimes x-rays or MRIs. Treatment involves non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), home remedies, the use of a mouthguard, limiting jaw movement, and if you’re still in need of relief, surgery.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a chronic inflammatory disorder that causes your body to attack itself, can lead to painful swelling in the lining of your joints throughout the body—including your jaw. Usually, the pain begins in your fingers and toes and may be worse in the morning or when you haven’t moved around in a while. A physical exam, blood tests, and imaging can help your doctor identify the disease. You can manage your symptoms with a combination of medication, physical therapy, lifestyle changes, and, in some cases, surgery.

6. Or you could have a nerve condition.

One of the scariest forms of jaw pain, trigeminal neuralgia (TN), a. k.a. tic douloureux, can trigger debilitating attacks of extreme, burning, or electric shock-like pain typically on one side of the jaw or lower face that can last anywhere from a few seconds to two minutes, per the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). You might also experience an aching or stabbing pain that’s not as intense but almost constant. Even ordinary movements—like putting on makeup, shaving, or brushing your teeth—could bring on intense pain and headaches which can worsen over time. Women and people over the age of 50 are more likely to be affected by this condition.

7. You have a severe headache.

Cluster headaches are a brutal type of headache typically felt behind the eyes and associated with a slew of other symptoms like tearing, redness of the face, congestion, and—for some people—face and jaw pain as well, says Dr. Moreno Hay. They’re relatively rare compared to other types of headaches and tend to strike in cycles lasting anywhere from weeks to months followed by periods of remission. Migraine headaches can also sometimes come with jaw pain along with throbbing pain on one side of the head, a stiff neck, nausea, and extreme sensitivity to sound and light. They tend to arise due to triggers like hormonal changes, bright lights, weather changes, and increased stress.

In both cases, an exam and imaging tests can help your doctor come up with a diagnosis. Jaw pain should fade with headache treatment, which typically involves medication and lifestyle changes, like sticking with a sleep schedule and routine, tracking headaches, and avoiding triggers.

8. It’s rare, but you may have a bone infection.

If you’ve recently had dental surgery, hurt your mouth, or have a condition that affects your immune health like diabetes or kidney failure, you could be at increased risk of a serious bone infection called osteomyelitis. Warning signs that call for immediate medical attention include pain in your actual jaw bone, redness, swelling and warmth in the area, and a fever. If you suspect you could have osteomyelitis, seek help ASAP as the infection could cut off your blood supply and cause permanent damage including the loss of your jaw bone if left untreated. Speedy treatment with IV antibiotics can help prevent serious complications and surgery can remove the affected part of the bone, says Dr. Moreno Hay.

9. A growth may be putting pressure on your jaw.

Another rarity: A tumor or cyst growing in your jawbone, mouth, or face could cause pain and swelling in your jaw. “These can be asymptomatic or present a wide range of symptoms depending on the affected structures,” says Dr. Moreno Hay. While jaw tumors and cysts are typically benign or noncancerous, they can sometimes grow quickly, invading your jawbone and displacing teeth.

If you suspect you might have a growth in your jaw, your doctor can determine a proper diagnosis with imaging tests and a biopsy. After that, a combination of therapies and surgery can be used to remove the growth and help your jaw heal. Follow-up appointments to check for recurrences might be necessary, too.

Why Does My Jaw Hurt? 5 Reasons For An Aching Jaw

You wake up to an aching jaw that grows more annoying throughout the day. If you recognize this painful scenario, it’s time to find out the answer to “Why does my jaw hurt?”. Let’s look at five typical reasons for jaw pain.

Why does my jaw hurt

Nearly everyone suffers from an aching jaw at some point in their lives. The reasons for jaw pain vary from simple, easily treated situations to complex problems requiring an advanced treatment plan. Here are five causes of jaw pain.

Dental problem– Jaw pain can spring from things like a (1) cavity, (2) cracked tooth, (3) infection, and (4) gum disease. Don’t neglect to make an appointment with your dentist if you suspect that a dental problem is at the root of your aching jaw.

Stress– Are you stressed with work and daily life? One of the sneaky ways that life’s weight shows itself is through a tense jaw. Too much jaw clenching and teeth grinding will undoubtedly result in an unhappy mouth.

Sinus– If you struggle with your sinuses, you’ve probably experienced the unique way that sinus pain and pressure masquerades as jaw pain. You can suspect a sinus issue if your jaw pain comes along with things like (1) dizziness, (2) post-nasal drip, and (3) forehead pressure. Your doctor can help to determine if your jaw pain comes from a sinus issue.

Headache– Migraines and cluster headaches are notorious culprits behind an agonizing jaw. In the case of a migraine, blood vessels and nerves combine to create intense discomfort. If your jaw pain subsides as the problem eases, there is a decent chance that the migraine caused the jaw pain. Check with your doctor if severe headaches persist.

TMJ- One of the most common causes of jaw pain is TMJ. The temporomandibular joint works to connect the lower jaw to your skull. There are a host of reasons that TMJ can bring about a sharp pain whenever you open your mouth. Symptoms include:

  • Tender jaw
  • Painful chewing
  • Difficulty opening jaw
  • Clicking sound when opening jaw
  • Pain around ears

Successful TMJ treatment often includes orthodontic assistance. Misaligned teeth and bites often cause jaw joint problems, so it responds well to braces. Smiles for Life Orthodontics specializes in helping patients to overcome TMJ syndrome so that they can have a pain-free smile.


When should you seek help for your aching jaw? In general, professionals say that home remedies like rest and ice are useful first steps. Avoid chewy foods and concentrate on relaxing your jaw. If home remedies fail to curb the pain, it is time to seek professional assistance. Schedule a time with your dentist for a complete evaluation.

Lastly, the next time that you ask yourself, “Why does my jaw hurt?” relax and remember that you don’t need to endure long-lasting jaw pain. Dental professionals are experts at diagnosing and solving all types of jaw-related issues. When your treatment needs include orthodontic work, contact us at Smiles for Life Orthodontics, and we’ll have you living a pain-free life in no time.


Why Does My Jaw Hurt When I Chew or Yawn?

That sudden pain gets scary because you don’t know exactly what’s causing it. Whether it’s a sharp pain or a mild discomfort (e.g. mild facial pain, clicking sounds when you open or close your jaw), the problem could be serious and requires urgent professional diagnosis and treatment.

Why does my jaw hurt when I chew or yawn

One common cause is temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). The temporomandibular joint is what connects your jawbone to your skull. The pain you’re feeling might come from that joint and/or the surrounding muscles, which in turn can be caused by a jaw injury, arthritis or genetics. No matter how careful we are, many of us will have TMJ.

Millions of people actually have TMJ but only a few of them get diagnosis or treatment. In most cases it’s tolerable and manageable but the pain and discomfort can distract you from your work, sleep, exercise and leisure. For example, you’re in an important gathering or business presentation and you don’t want the jaw pain to distract you. It can also be a constant burden because in the back of your mind you know you have to do something about the pain.

Here at Wellers Hill and Woolloongabba Physiotherapy we could do a proper diagnosis and design a tailored treatment for you. Dentists and ENT surgeons send their patients to us when it comes to TMJ. Also, many patients now recognise how physiotherapy helps in effectively managing the pain and improving the range of motion of the joints.

It starts with a thorough diagnosis to figure out the root cause. This thorough diagnosis also helps in designing a tailored treatment perfectly suited for the patient. The treatment program may involve the following:

  • Soft tissue releases plus massage and trigger point therapy (for decreasing the tension in the jaw)
  • Joint mobilisation to decrease pain
  • Relaxation and active exercises
  • Correction of the movement pattern
  • Postural guidance for proper alignment

It’s an integrated approach because patients who experience jaw pain also often feel pain in their necks and lower backs (dizziness and ear blockages are also common). In addition, these patients may have been prone to stress or were involved in a vehicular accident. They feel the pain and discomfort in different parts of their bodies. Perhaps the jaw pain is just one of the symptoms.

You could have sleepless nights because of those worries. It’s crucial to face them head on so that you could focus again on your career or home living. It’s about being proactive and not waiting for the condition to get worse. Also, it’s about reclaiming your peace of mind.

Contact us here at Wellers Hill and Woolloongabba Physiotherapy if you require a thorough diagnosis and tailored treatment. We only use science-backed techniques and strategies in helping patients get back to an active and worry-free lifestyle.

5 Causes of Jaw Pain That You Need to Know

Understanding the causes of jaw pain is the first step in relieving that impossible-to-ignore ache—which, if you deal with jaw pain, is probably exactly what you want to do. Who could blame you? It sucks to be in pain while doing basic things like talking, drinking, chewing, and making facial expressions, and your jaw is unfortunately deeply involved in all of the above. Then there’s the fact that sometimes your jaw might hurt when you’re not even actively using it. Some good news, though: Doctors have plenty of ways to address frustrating jaw pain, including both long-term treatments and in-the-moment relief. Below, find out the most common causes of jaw pain and what to do about them.

1. You grind or clench your teeth.

If you do there’s a pretty good chance it’s because you’re stressed out. That’s because people who are under stress or have anxiety can develop parafunctional habits, Robert S. Glickman, D.M.D., chair and professor of oral and maxillofacial surgery at the NYU College of Dentistry, tells SELF. This basically means they use their mouth or teeth in ways beyond their intended functions, like chewing food.

Grinding your teeth—also known as bruxism—is a classic parafunctional habit. It happens when you clench your teeth together without realizing it, which can create a lot of tension in your teeth and jaw, along with the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that support your jaw, Dr. Glickman says. This can leave you in serious pain, not only jaw pain but also sometimes headaches and earaches. Doctors aren’t totally sure what causes bruxism, but stress is a major risk factor, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Grinding your teeth when you’re awake can be annoying and painful, but at least you might be aware it’s happening and can try to stop it. Sleep bruxism, on the other hand, can be harder to quell. The theory is that it’s connected to what’s called the arousal response, which is a change in the depth of your sleep (when you sleep lighter or wake up).

If you suspect that you’re grinding your teeth at night, your doctor may prescribe a night guard, which acts as a protective layer between your top and bottom teeth to help relieve grinding-related tension. They may also have tips on how to deal with stress that could be behind your bruxism.

2. You have a TMJ disorder.

You have a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) on each side of your jawbone to act as a hinge that connects your jaw to your skull, according to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR). Like most parts of your body, sometimes your temporomandibular joints can act up, resulting in a TMJ disorder. For example, the disc can erode or move out of alignment, or something can damage the joint, like a physical blow or arthritis, according to the Mayo Clinic. The scientific jury is still out on what causes TMJ disorders.

Although there’s a variety of TMJ disorders, they share jaw pain as the most common symptom, says the NIDCR. Others include jaw stiffness, difficulty opening your jaw, your jaw feeling “locked,” painful clicking or popping when opening or closing your mouth, and a change in the way your upper and lower teeth fit together.

If your doctor thinks you might have a problem with your temporomandibular joints, they’ll probably perform a physical exam and imaging tests to see what’s going on. Luckily, the pain is typically temporary or at least doesn’t get worse, according to the NIDCR. That’s why the first line of treatment for the most common TMJ disorders is pretty conservative—mostly lifestyle modifications that we’ll talk about below. But if those don’t work, your doctor might talk to you about further interventions, the Mayo Clinic says, such as medication, physical therapy, injections, or (in serious cases) surgery.

3. Something’s wrong with your bite.

When you have a “good” bite, all of your teeth are lined up with each other when you chew, Dr. Glickman explains. But with a “bad” bite, you may only have a few teeth line up, like the ones in the back. Bad bites can come in various forms, like an overbite (when your upper teeth overlap your lower teeth) or underbite (when your lower teeth overlap your upper teeth).

Why do I have jaw pain? 4 odd symptoms you shouldn’t ignore

Turning 40 brings so many positives, but it’s also decade when we start experiencing body changes and new aches and pains. Though good health and staying fit are important to many women, we often don’t pay enough attention to these changes.

“Women are indeed attuned to their health, but women are also very busy and may dismiss pain because they simply don’t have time for it,” says internist Dr. Debra DeJoseph, medical director of The Women’s Health Institute at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland.

The good news: Most changes are nothing to worry about.

But, some do signal a problem that should be treated or may even need immediate medical attention. Here are 4 symptoms women should never ignore.

1. Belly bloat

Most likely: A carb trigger, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome

Worst-case scenario: Ovarian cancer

What woman hasn’t felt too full in the belly? Belly bloat is usually triggered by carbohydrates (generally those highly processed and poorly digested carbs), constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, a wheat and gluten intolerance called celiac disease, or simply too much belly fat.

But don’t self-diagnose, especially if your belly woes are affecting your quality of life or if you are just simply concerned, says DeJoseph.

In some cases, that bloated feeling is a symptom of ovarian cancer. “With ovarian cancer symptoms can be vague and there’s no reliable screening for it,” says DeJoseph. Indeed, most women diagnosed with ovarian cancer present with advanced disease, leading to a lower overall survival.

When to act: If you’re experiencing abdominal or pelvic discomfort, persistent bloating or stomach pain, difficulty eating or feeling full quickly, changes in bowel movements and fatigue and back pain.

“All of these symptoms can easily be attributed to something else, and every woman seems to have at least one of these symptoms on occasion, but it’s also important to make sure these symptoms are related to something more benign than ovarian cancer, so see your doctor,” says DeJoseph.

2. Jaw pain

Most likely: A tooth or gum infection, TMJ

Worst-case scenario: Heart attack

If jaw pain is the only symptom you’re experiencing, it may be because of a gum or tooth infection or a condition called temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, explains general dentist Dr. Thomas Snyder of Cleveland. Or it could be caused by moving your jaw awkwardly or crunching down on a hard candy. If the pain lingers for more than a few days or becomes worse, see your dentist or your doctor as soon as you can, says Snyder.

However, in some cases, jaw pain can signal a heart attack, especially in women, says cardiologist Dr. Nieca Goldberg, director of NYU Langone’s Joan H. Tisch Center for Women’s Health. In that case, there’s no time to waste.

When to act: Common heart attack symptoms include: chest pain or discomfort for both men and women, but women are more likely to have less typical symptoms such as shortness of breath, nausea or vomiting, as well as back or jaw pain, according to the American Heart Association.

Also, many women report that symptoms can be fleeting, and sometimes occur over the course of days, even weeks, says Goldberg.


Get immediate medical help; call 911.

You’re at higher risk of a heart attack by virtue of your age, smoking history, family history, and having other risk factors like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

“Women need to know their risk factors, change those factors that they can like quitting smoking,” says Goldberg. “But most of all they need to know that heart attacks can happen to them and be aware of the symptoms that may be more likely to happen to women.”

3. Feeling fatigued

Most likely: Getting too little sleep

Worst-case scenario: Sleep apnea, insomnia

Adults ages 26 to 54 need an average of seven to nine hours of sleep a night, according to the National Sleep Foundation. Many Americans don’t get enough rest, but women seem to have more difficulty falling asleep and then staying asleep.

We apologize, this video has expired.

We can blame some of the fractured sleep on our hormones. “Sometimes, sleep problems can result from hormonal changes during menstruation, pregnancy and especially around perimenopause and menopause when estrogen levels decline,” explains sleep medicine specialist Dr. Ilene Rosen, a member of the board of directors for the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

Obstructive sleep apnea, a more serious sleep problem, occurs when you experience interrupted breathing during sleep due to a closing of the upper airway.

Prior to perimenopause and menopause, higher levels of estrogen and progesterone are protective and help maintain this upper airway.

“But once these hormones start fluctuating or drop to very low levels, we see higher incidences of sleep apnea in women,” says Rosen, associate professor of clinical medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania.

When left untreated, sleep apnea may cause high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, depression, car accidents and other problems.

Risk factors include a smaller jaw (common in women), the use of certain medications, obesity and even alcohol.

When to act: Although sleepless nights aren’t uncommon —especially if stress has piled on — talk to your doctor if you’re concerned and especially if poor sleep lasts longer than a few weeks.

“Sometimes, it’s as easy as explaining that drinking a glass of wine before bedtime can disrupt sleep,” says Rosen, adding that other lifestyle changes and non-medical approaches like relaxation training often help.

Other treatments include prescription medication and treating underlying issues like chronic pain or depression.

4. A new skin growth

Most likely: Benign skin lesion

Worst-case scenario: Skin cancer

If you baked in the sun when you were younger, chances are good your skin is now paying the price in terms of slight wrinkles and strange looking brown spots on sun-exposed areas.

Skin tags —little protuberances hanging off your neck and other body parts —and seborrheic keratosis —those ugly black or brown spots that look like warts —are common as we age.

Most skin changes are benign, but if they’re cosmetically unappealing or irritated, they can be removed, says dermatologist Dr. Sheetal Mehta of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.

However, by the time you hit your 40s, all those years of sun exposure can lead to higher incidences of skin cancer, the most deadly of which is melanoma.

Melanoma is also one of the most common cancers in the under-30 crowd, especially young women.

When to act: Although most moles are benign, those that worry doctors are the ones that look different than other moles already on your body, or those that develop after you’re about 20 years of age, according to experts at the Cleveland Clinic.

Also, be aware of basal cell skin cancers, which are caused by too much sun exposure. These cancers are generally shiny, pink or red, and can resemble an open sore or scar.

“I can’t emphasize enough how important it is for women to check their skin themselves and to talk to their doctors or dermatologists about getting an annual skin check,” says Mehta. “Like other medical problems, skin cancers that are caught early are the easiest to treat.”

Solving the Mystery of Morning Jaw Pain and Stiffness

When you wake up in the morning, do you feel relaxed and refreshed, or does your jaw feel stiff and achy? Perhaps the pain goes away as the day progresses, but returns again the next morning. The most likely cause of this mysterious morning jaw pain is bruxism, or grinding your teeth. Find out how serious this condition is and how it can lead to other jaw problems.

One Possible Cause of Morning Jaw Pain: Bruxism

MedlinePlus defines bruxism as clenching your teeth tightly or grinding them back and forth over each other. These actions occur subconsciously, most often while you’re sleeping. Although some people grind their teeth when stressed or anxious, nocturnal bruxism is the most serious form because it’s harder to control.

What Causes Bruxism?

There’s some debate in the medical community regarding precisely what causes teeth grinding, particularly while sleeping. A few factors that influence the condition in some people include:

  • High stress levels
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Allergies
  • Trauma
  • Sleep disorders, including sleep apnea
  • Smoking
  • Drinking alcoholic and caffeinated beverages

What are the Symptoms of Bruxism?

If you complain about morning jaw pain and stiffness, you’re already familiar with one major symptom of bruxism. Others, according to MedlinePlus, include:

  • Worn down teeth
  • Ear and headaches
  • Tooth sensitivity toward hot, cold or sweet foods
  • Insomnia
  • Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ/TMD)

Another Possible Cause of Morning Jaw Pain: TMJ

One of the most serious problems associated with bruxism is that it can lead to TMJ problems. In fact, if morning joint pain and stiffness is only one of your symptoms, you may not only be grinding your teeth at night; you may have a full-scale TMJ disorder.

If you experience any prolonged jaw pain, whether in the morning or other time of day, you should schedule an appointment with Evanson DDS for a TMJ evaluation. We assess the tissues in your jaw joint to identify problems there and recommend the appropriate treatment.

What are the Symptoms of TMJ?

Morning pain and stiffness might be just one of your symptoms if you have TMJ. WebMD points out other signs of jaw joint disorders, including:

  • Severe jaw pain and discomfort affecting one or both sides of the face.
  • Swelling around the jaw.
  • Heightened pain when you open your mouth wide.
  • Jaws that become stuck open or closed.
  • Clicking, popping or grating sounds when you open and close your mouth, which may or may not cause pain.
  • Difficulty chewing or a sudden uncomfortable bite, as if the jaw abruptly went out of alignment.
  • Achy teeth, neck and ears.
  • Hearing problems or ringing in the ears.

Treating Bruxism and TMJ

If your only current symptom is morning jaw pain and stiffness, don’t let nightly teeth grinding develop into TMJ. At Evanson DDS, one of our main treatment options for bruxism is to fit patients with a custom mouth guard to wear at night.

If you discover you have TMJ, we recommend the following treatments:

  • Take over-the-counter pain medication for temporary relief.
  • Place a cold compress on your jaw to reduce pain and swelling.
  • Eat soft foods. Avoid hard food, chewy food and gum.
  • Make facial relaxation a habit so your jaw stays loose.
  • Massage sore jaw joints to relieve tension.
  • Wear a mouth guard nightly to prevent bruxism.
  • Get fitted for an orthodontic appliance or retainer to reduce jaw discomfort and/or reposition the jaw joint.
  • Consider surgery if your case is severe and other treatment methods aren’t working.

TMJ cases range from mild to severe. If you’re experiencing joint pain, don’t wait for the condition to worsen. Contact Evanson DDS online or call us at (720) 409-0008 to schedule a TMJ evaluation.

Cancer of the lower jaw | Dentistry Galadent

Cancer of the mandible is a primary or secondary (metastatic) malignant tumor that affects the mandibular bone.

Diagnosis of mandibular cancer includes the collection of complaints, anamnesis of the disease, physical examination, X-ray.

The results of a cytological study are decisive for the diagnosis. With secondary cancer of the lower jaw on the mucous membrane of the alveolar process in the area of ​​transition of the immobile mucosa to the mobile one, a crater-shaped ulcerative surface with a dense bottom covered with a gray bloom and torn eaten infiltrated edges is revealed.On palpation, pain, bleeding is noted.

Cancer of the lower jaw is a malignant neoplasm characterized by an infiltrative type of growth, early metastasis. Patients indicate the appearance of acute paroxysmal pain, radiating along the mandibular nerve, paresthesia of the lower lip and mental region, the presence of pathological mobility of intact teeth. Diagnosis of cancer of the lower jaw includes clinical, radiological and cytological studies.Treatment of mandibular cancer consists of pre- and postoperative telegammotherapy, radical resection of the affected part of the bone. If metastases are detected, lymphadenectomy is performed.

Cancer of the lower jaw is diagnosed less often than the upper one. One case of cancer of the lower jaw accounts for one case of sarcoma of the same localization. The primary tumor process is detected mainly in men after 40-45 years. More often, a malignant neoplasm is localized in the area of ​​the molars. Metastatic cancer of the lower jaw occurs mainly in women due to metastasis of tumors of the breast and stomach.Histogenetic cancer of the lower jaw in the vast majority of cases is squamous cell keratinizing.

Causes of cancer of the mandible

The main causes of cancer of the mandible are obligate and facultative precancers of the mucous membrane lining the alveolar process. Malignant damage to bone tissue develops as a result of malignancy of papillomatosis, an erosive or verrucous form of leukoplakia. With a long-standing decubital ulcer of the mucous membrane, which appeared as a result of chronic trauma by the sharp edges of decayed teeth, there are also high risks of the transition of the inflammatory process to a tumor one.

Cancer of the lower jaw can also occur as a result of a malignant neoplasm growing into the bone from adjacent anatomical regions. Tumor cells can spread to bone tissue from the bottom of the oral cavity, the retromolar site. In rare cases, patients with primary cancer of the lower jaw, developing directly in the bone from the remnants of the tooth germ or epithelial cells of the sheath of an odontogenic cyst, turn to dentistry.

Classification and symptoms of cancer of the mandible

According to the prevalence of the tumor, the following stages of cancer of the mandible are distinguished:

  • T1 – the malignant neoplasm is localized within one anatomical region.
  • T2 – Cancer of the mandible has spread to two adjacent areas.
  • T3 – The tumor extends beyond two anatomical regions.
  • T4 – the entire organ is involved in the tumor process.

Diagnosis of cancer of the mandible

Diagnosis of cancer of the mandible includes collection of complaints, anamnesis of the disease, physical examination, X-ray. The results of the cytological examination are decisive in the diagnosis.With secondary cancer of the lower jaw on the mucous membrane of the alveolar process in the area of ​​transition of the immobile mucosa to the mobile one, a crater-shaped ulcerative surface with a dense bottom covered with a gray bloom and torn eaten infiltrated edges is revealed. On palpation, pain, bleeding is noted.

For cytological examination, the dentist takes a scraping from the ulcerative surface. With central cancer, it is impossible to take material for research by puncture due to the high density of the bone tissue of the lower jaw.In this case, trepanation of the bone is indicated. When enlarged lymph nodes are detected, puncture is performed with subsequent cytological examination of the contents. To diagnose cancer of the lower jaw, a radioisotope method is also used, which is based on the ability of a malignant neoplasm to accumulate the p32 isotope.

Treatment of cancer of the mandible

Cancer of the mandible requires a combination treatment. At the preoperative stage, a number of orthopedic measures are performed (taking impressions, making structures for fixing the remaining part of the jaw in the same position).Mobile teeth are not removed due to the high risk of lymphogenous dissemination of cancer cells. This is followed by a course of gamma therapy, after 3 weeks after which the operation is performed. With superficial lesions of the alveolar process, a through resection is performed, retreating on both sides of the pathological focus.

If the cancer of the lower jaw is localized in the middle of the lateral region, a portion of the bone is removed from the mental region to the mandibular foramen. When the angular zone is involved in the tumor process, the resection of half of the mandibular bone is started. If the chin is affected, the mandibular bone is removed from corner to corner. In the case of metastasis of cancer of the lower jaw to the regional lymph nodes, radical excision of the lymphatic apparatus along with the subcutaneous tissue, accessory nerve, sternocleidomastoid muscle, and submandibular gland is indicated.

When cancer of the lower jaw spreads to the tongue, palate, auricular gland and pharynx, all tissues affected by the tumor process must be removed. Gamma therapy is also carried out in the postoperative period.Reconstructive operations aimed at replacing bone defects are shown to be performed no earlier than a year after surgery. If an inoperable malignant tumor is diagnosed, a course of palliative radiation therapy is prescribed. The cells of squamous cell keratinizing cancer are insensitive to chemotherapy.

TRIPLE NERVE NEUROPATHY (NEURITIS) – School of Health – GBUZ City Polyclinic 25 Krasnodar MZ KK

to the muscle stretching the eardrum. The motor portion of the trigeminal nerve is responsible for the movement of the lower jaw up, down and sideways.

Sensitive nerve roots on the face innervate the back of the nose, the medial (inner) corner of the eye, the upper eyelid, the skin of the forehead and scalp, the upper jaw with teeth, the skin of the lower eyelid, the lateral (outer) corner of the eye, the upper part of the cheek and the upper lip, lower jaw with teeth, temporal skin, lower cheek and lower lip, ear and chin.

Vegetative fibers are suitable for lacrimal and salivary glands, oral mucosa, tonsils, gums.

Causes of trigeminal neuropathy

Dysfunction of the nervus trigeminus due to various causative factors is called neuropathy.The causes of neuropathies can be infections (tonsillitis (tonsillitis), viral hepatitis, syphilis, herpes), sinusitis, osteomyelitis, intoxication, allergic reactions, injuries, including those of an iatrogenic nature (in dental practice).

Hypothermia, stress, alcohol consumption contribute to the onset of symptoms. Painful attacks provoke food intake, changes in weather conditions, physical activity. When nerve fibers are irritated as a result of inflammation of various origins, they speak of trigeminal neuritis.

Symptoms of trigeminal neuropathy

Symptoms of trigeminal neuropathy are movement and sensory disorders, in accordance with the areas of innervation of its branches. Pain (neuralgia) is aching, burning or throbbing in nature and can be localized in the chin, eyes, ear, teeth of the upper and lower jaw, forehead, hair roots. Pain syndrome develops acutely or subacutely, it can be short-term, accompanied by a spasm of the chewing muscles (trismus), or constant, with increasing intensity.Painful sensations are combined with numbness and paresthesias (tingling, “creeping”, etc.) of the corresponding areas of innervation.

With damage to the mandibular nerve, the ability to lower the lower jaw is impaired and, as a result, the inability to speak and eat. Pain in the ear can be accompanied by a feeling of stuffiness, “squelching” in the ear canal when opening the mouth, chewing. With neuritis, palpation (pressure) at the exit points of the trigeminal nerve is painful. On examination, a violation of sensitivity is revealed, often pain with vertical percussion (beating) of the teeth.


Treatment of trigeminal neuropathy includes the appointment of anti-inflammatory drugs, B vitamins (riboflavin, thiamine, cyanocobalamin), if indicated – antihistamines, antibacterial and antiviral agents.

To improve neuro-metabolic processes, drugs such as nootropil, cerebrolysin, actovegin, sermion, nicotinic acid are prescribed. A good effect is observed with physiotherapeutic effects: UFO, UHF, phonopheresis with lidocaine, diathermic currents, etc.
