Wisdom teeth jaw hurts

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom teeth jaw hurts


Avatar f tn You should probably get checked out by a TMJ specialist to see if your symptoms are related to the TMJ popping. There is a definite possibility with the muscle strain that opening and closing the jaw as well as pain is related to the TMJ but I'm not sure about the mouth dryness at this point. As for the teeth moving, it probably isn't due to the wisdom teeth as people without wisdom teeth have their teeth move as well.
1402335 tn?1280877356 omg my jaw clicks and it hurts alot when I yawn or take a bite of something like a burger or whatever ...sometimes I can't even bite down all the way. It does it all the time, worse this past 6 months or so. It's been happening for about 2 years. it's horrible. what is that??
Avatar n tn I had my wisdom teeth removed about 1 month ago and a few days ago, I awoke with pain in my left jaw joint. Since then, it hurts to open my mouth wide in the jaw joint and down under my jaw as well. I also have felt a little tingle in my face in that area when I open wide and hear a small click in my jaw. Does this sound like TMJ and could it be related to the surgery? Should I contact my oral surgeon or a dentist that specializes in this?
Avatar f tn You have wisdom teeth or something? Make a dentist appointment, this has nothing to do with pregnancy.
Avatar f tn My jaw cracks more then usual when chewing but I think its the weather changing not due to being pregnant.

358304 tn?1409709492 I only tried the night guard once lastnight... didnt seem to do anything... but, obviously I'm not going to give up after one night! lol. I researched on youtube, tmj massage, and I massaged my temples and my jaw, cheeks, head, neck... and it relieved the tmj it seemed like for a long while! so im gonna keep that up! Jade59: No I haven't started any new medications at all... I've been off of lexapro for about 4-5 months. My wife thinks I should start on it again...
Avatar f tn Sometimes ear ringing and I have got little lymphnode on the right side of my neck near jaw maybe 2 centimeters big. May wisdom tooth cause that problems ?
Avatar f tn Hi, Actually, evolution has shortened the lower jaw, thereby making wisdom teeth (or the third molar) obsolete. Many people today are born without them at all. Those of us that have them, if they are crooked or impacted, it's recommended for removal. They can have a direct relationship to the alignment of your other teeth if they have no room to erupt. Not to mention the possibility of jaw bone problems with a tooth trying to erupt directly into it.
4518471 tn?1355798857 So I had my wisdom teeth just over a week and I am still in pain not as much when I first got them taken out and this pass friday I called the nurse and she said to stop taking the strong pain killers "hydro" and have been really like feeling sick but did not have a cold or anything just felt bad.
Avatar n tn I had 2 lower wisdom teeth, and one was removed a month ago. Those teeth would ache when I developed sinus pain from allergies. It was a dull ache, and the sinus pain was much worse. Now the side where the tooth was removed is very painful when my sinuses act up. It hurts into the jaw, and I need pain meds. Is this normal?
3240950 tn?1351539258 Yikes! Wisdom teeth! Yeah, the pain is just getting worse. Im starting to think it could be a nerve. My whole right side of my jaw hurts. I can barely eat. Only thing im taking is acetaminophen. It helps a bit but still hurts all the time!
Avatar f tn A couple of years ago, my dentist informed me that my wisdom teeth needed to be removed as soon as possible. I have still not had them removed and the far/upper region of my lower right jaw (near/below and the area around my wisdom tooth) is where I occassionally experience pain and swelling. Could my sore throat have anything to do with the wisdom tooth on the lower portion of the right side of my jaw? Or are the two wholly unrelated?
Avatar n tn I have a hard knot/lump on my lower right jaw bone behind my wisdom tooth which is still there. I noticed it yesterday and it makes it hard to close my mouth or eat on that side and it's painful. I just wanted to know if anyone might know what it could be. I have jaw pain from time to time which makes my wisdom tooth ache because I have TMJ, so my doctor told me last year. If anyone has any ideas let me know.
Avatar f tn My wisdom tooth is growing on the right bottom of my mouth and it HURTS. My dad's going to take me to the dentist one of these days though to help about it. I've been taking ibuprofen these past 2 days *advil* to just ease the pain, but the swelling really hurts and got my node lymph glands next to my jaw a little swollen because of the wisdom tooth. Any way to help the pain or make the swelling go down? And how long will this last until my gum is normal again.
Avatar n tn It was one of my lower wisdom teeth that was removed and now my front 4, bottom teeth hurt terribly. Could this be caused by shifting? I'm really confused and tired of being in pain. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn It sounds like difficult extractions so I think you will have discomfort for 7 to 10 days, hopefully less.
Avatar f tn Its difficult to walk because there is such a throbbing pain every time I take a step or bend over. It hurts my surrounding teeth when I clench my jaw. Is this normal? Or could this be an infection? I also cant open my jaw very wide without pain.
Avatar n tn Now recently, mt lower right wisdom tooth is doing the same thing. My jaw has been feeling a little stiff and hurts when I open wide. Now, my mom is supposed to be scheduling an appointment for me to get my wisdom teeth pulled after finals, which is in like 20 days. I am starting to fear I have waited too long. Im an anxious kid and always have been, and I get nervous about things like this. I'm afraid I am waiting too long and it's getting me nervous. How long is tooooo long?
Avatar f tn I guess ever since ive been taking prenatals and ive been pregnant my wisdom teeth have been killing me! They were growing before I was pregnant but now im waking up with a sore jaw line and gums. Im not even sure if I can get them taken out while im pregnant. Has this happened to anybody else?
Avatar n tn Wisdom tooth pain can radiate and cause a lot of problems, especially if they become infected or are impacted. Fillings can also be sensitive after having them done. Especially ones where a white filling material is used due to the bonding materials used during treatment. It is reasuring that you Dentist has taken xrays which shows there is no apical infection present or any decay. If you still have problems I would go back to the Dentist you saw.
Avatar n tn I have 5 teeth pulled out on Aug 6th (four wisdom, one fractured). Now the bruise and the swollen has gone. But every time I try to open my mouth, the right side of my mouth would be very hurtful. Now I can only open my mouth to the degree that to put one finger between the upper and the down sides of my teeth. Any wider than that would cause a lot of pain in the right side of mouth. I'm still taking antibotietics every day. Could u tell me what might happened and what shall I do?
Avatar n tn Hi ladies, I was wondering if any of you had a toothache that hurt in your jaw. I'm 12 weeks and I can't tell if it's just pain that will subside or if one of my wisdom teeth are coming in. I have an appointment with my dentist next week for a cleaning.
Avatar n tn So I got a severe cold recently after being super healthy. Sore throat started then nasal congestion now chest. I'm feeling the most pain in my lower left jaw where my wisdom tooth is. I x-rayed a year ago and they were all fine. But i can feel the swelling and it hurts out of nowhere. Could it be infected?
Avatar f tn Your descriptions suggest tmj injury instead of jaw bone fracture.seeing a dentist to have a preliminary evaluation is advised.
Avatar n tn Some patients develop this after having wisdom teeth removed. This is just when the joint that is in between your jaw and skull shifts out of place when you open and close your mouth. If you hear a popping noise when you open and close this is likely the case. Hope this helped.
Avatar f tn I have been obsessing over my neck for about a month now. The sternomacloid muscle on my right seems to be bigger than the left. It doesn't hurt much but it looks bigger. I'm not sure if it's been this way and I haven't noticed till now or what. I got my wisdom teeth removed two weeks ago and prior to that my jaw muscle on the right seems to be bigger and still is but my tooth was impacted and sideways so that might be why.
