Jaw pain is a common condition that may be caused by sinusitis. Or it could be a sign of TMD, temporomandibular joint disorder, treatable at Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center in Lone TDree CO.
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 with a cold or allergies.
Many of our patients who come to our office 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, and treatment can begin from there. But remember, jaw pain shouldn’t be ignored.
