TMJ: TMJ stands for the "temperomandibular joint" which is the jaw joint. This pain means there is some type of injury to that joint. This could be from clenching or grinding your teeth, excessive gum chewing, or a bite problem. See your dentist.

Infection ?: TMJ? Bruxism? Wisdom teeth? Explore these and other possibilities with your physician and dentist.

Different things: Pain can be caused by infected tooth/teeth, infected gums/bone, fractures, abfractures, traumatic occlusion, neurologic disorder, malocclusion, joint dysfunction, parafunctional habits, and so many other problems. Have your Dentist take a look.
