Starting the Conversation When Your Jaw Hurts


Posted on 7/30/2017 by Dr. Michael Allard
Arrowhead Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery can help if you have jaw pain.
There can be many different reasons for your jaw to hurt. Some of them are just due to using your jaw too much when it isn't used to it, but others can be due to problems within the jaw joint. If you recently ate a food that required extensive chewing that is out of your normal routine, this could explain the soreness. However, if that isn't true in your case, it is time that you talk to your dentist or your oral surgeon about the problem.

What You Can Say When Your Jaw Hurts

The first thing to do when your jaw hurts is to call and schedule an appointment. Once you are in to see your dentist or oral surgeon, let them know that your jaw hurts. Explain the type of pain you are in, and what you do that causes that type of pain. They are going to want to know if you did anything recently that would account for the pain, so make sure you think carefully about your life prior to your pain. They are also going to want to know if there is anything you have found that relieves the pain, even somewhat. The more information you can provide them now, the easier it will be for them to determine the problem.

Don’t be afraid of talking to your oral specialist. They want to be able to help you and they can, if they know what the problem is. It may take them a time or two of treatment trials for them to figure out what brings you the most relief, but they will keep working with you until they find the right answer. Talk to them at your next appointment, and give them the chance to provide you the relief you deserve. If you have any questions, or if you would like to learn more, please call us today at (623) 738-2564.
