Jaw Pain Ask The Dentist Richard Winter Question:
Intense Pain: My mouth has hurt for years. I have had 5 teeth removed because of 'mysteriously' cracked teeth after a percussion test. 5 teeth removed but pain is still there.

It is by my saliva gland, top front (left). It feels like an infection. Sometimes pain does not present itself othertimes it is jaw dropping painfully shooting through my head. I get sick to stomach, head hurts, light hurts.

The pain is similar to what is described with Trigeminal Neuralgia, but it lasts a long time. It hurts sometimes to press on nerve areas of my face. Pain is never 'shocking' rather intense and radiates throughout my mouth but seems to be concentrated on one side. Headaches are towards front. ...Visitor from IN

Answer:
Go to a dentist or be referred to an oral surgeon for a work up.

Your problems may necessitate going in for a neurology consultation, x-rays, catscan and other diagnostic procedures to identify your problem.

This is not a question for the internet - it is a question for a real live dentist.

If you can't get the appropriate answer go to your local dental school for a consultation.
