Tooth & Jaw Pain
Get the Relief that you Deserve

Ouch! Tooth and jaw pain can incapacitate and affect your ability to speak, sleep, and function. Dental and jaw pain can feel critical even if a mild general dentistry problem causes it. Because multiple sources can trigger dental and facial pain, it can be difficult to diagnose the root of dental or facial pain alone. Therefore, your BLVD Dental team in Mid-Wilshire can provide diagnosis and treatment solutions to give you the relief you deserve.

Why does dental and jaw pain happen?

Could tooth and jaw pain be connected? In short, sometimes they are connected, and other times, they aren’t. Some direct causes of tooth pain include:

  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth impaction
  • Inflammation of tooth pulp
  • Cavities
  • Infections
  • Dental cracks

Because your teeth and jaws are so close in proximity, sometimes jaw health impacts dental health (and vice versa). For instance, if you have a cracked tooth or erosion from habitual jaw clenching or another TMJ disorder, your teeth will likely hurt too. Also, a toothache can be so deep that it reaches the jawbone.

Likewise, you might feel tooth or jaw pain from non-dental sources, like congestion or a sinus infection.
