Suffering From Jaw Pain?

urgent care for jaw pain Seattle

At Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle, we treat several causes of pain in the oral area. In today’s article, we will discuss jaw pain.

Sometimes it’s difficult to pinpoint the cause of jaw pain. Here are some of the possible causes:

Infection

A localized infection can trigger or exacerbate jaw pain. An infection puts your tooth and jaw bone at risk, so swift intervention is essential for many reasons. If your jaw starts swelling, call us  right away. This could indicate a dangerous, fast-moving infection.

Temporomandibular Joint and Muscle Disorder (TMD)

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge-type joint that allows you to open and close your mouth. Chronic TMD can be debilitating. Teeth clenching or grinding can cause or exacerbate TMD. It can also be caused by injury or arthritis. Some individuals who experience TMD notice flare-ups when they are under a lot of stress. If stress is the only cause, stress-reducing habits can help you prevent it or reduce the severity. But the first step is diagnosing the cause.

Sinusitis

Sinusitis is inflammation of the tissues that line your sinuses. Inflammation commonly develops with a cold or allergies. When these tissues are inflamed, it can create pressure in surrounding areas. Thus, inflammation from a cold or allergies can result in jaw pain.

At Advanced Cosmetic Implant and Laser Dentistry in Seattle we treat jaw pain, including TMJ/TMD. We also offer complete general dentistry services. Schedule an appointment today!
