I went for my routine cleaning at the dentist two days ago and expected a little soreness of my jaw
and back gums around my wisdom teeth. However, the pain
in my jaw
is still present, and so bad that i can barely open my mouth halfway to eat, and when I swallow it feels like I have strep throat. The dentist did a lot of evaluating of my jaw bone during the appointment since i have minor TMJ disorder, but my TMJ disorder does not cause pain like I am experiencing now.
