Differential Diagnos: If your teeth are in good condition;no decay issues and your third molars are not an issue i would then see my md/cardiologist as some people refer angina type pain to the jaw. You are young however the numbers are high and importantly they can be reversed.

Could also be: The pain may not be related to your heart but to the muscles in your jaw or tmj. I would also suggest seeing a dentist who can diagnose and treat tmd.

See DDS & MD: From your question i would assume that you are thinking that your jaw problem might be related to your heart. I would suggest that you see both a dentist to rule out any dental problems and your pcp or a cardiologist to help you get your risk factors lowered and rule out any circulatory or cardiac issues. Good to see both on a regular basis anyway.
