Jaw Pain Ask The Dentist Corinne Scalzitti Question:
Ear and Jaw pain and Headaches: I been having this problem with my jaw for some years now and it comes and goes.

The pain is by my ears, at the end of my jaw line. I don't grind my teeth but I do feel like it wants to pop but it doesn't.

I do get headaches and I feel like my jaw will get stuck someday now. It also feels like my jaw is not lined up right. I feel all this by my ears when I open and close my mouth.

Please help, I'm not so good with pain and its getting to that point. ...Visitor from TX

Answer:
I think you grind your teeth at night, although you may be unaware of this.

I would suggest that you see a dentist who treats TMJ problems. He will probably offer you some sort of nightguard or other appliance that may help you.

Corinne Scalzitti, DMD, MAGD
