A member asked:

Would a brain and neck mri or a head and neck ct scan show the jaw bone/joints ?

Maybe, but best way to image jaw is to do specific MRI dedicated to TMJ visualization. Random views are unlikely to be sufficient.

Head & neck CT will give a overview of the anatomy and will evaluate all the causes of jaw pain. MRI TMJ will give high resolution detail of TMJ and may not give any information beyond the joints.
