What You Can Say When Your Jaw HurtsThe 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.
