Aching Jaw on Los Altos?

Aching Jaw In Los Altos?

Hi. I’m Dr. Joseph Field, and today in the Los Altos 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 with a cold or allergies.

Many of my Palo Alto patients who come to me 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 Palo Alto dental office, and treatment can begin from there. But remember, jaw pain shouldn’t be ignored.
