TMJ TMD: Temporo-mandibular disorder is the second most frequent cause of orofacial pain after dental pain. TMD accompanying symptoms include: jaw pain, limited range of motion, headache and earache. Proper diagnosis is the key for the successful treatment. See an orofacial pain practitioner for a consultation and management.

Maxillary tooth ?: It may be that the erupting tooth is digging into your cheek and jawbone. Let a local dentist take a look to see if it needs extraction. Most do.
