It can: If they gave you a plastic syringe to irrigate, then be good about it. Otherwise, get a waterpik. It happened to my daughter...and the surgeon did an excellent job too! It will all be ok once it heals. No worries. If it gets worse, then call the office and ask to be seen. Most likely, it will continue to improve.See 2 more doctor answers

Stress?: The fact that you are getting headaches, jaw and ear pain may suggest you are clenching your jaw from stress during the day or night. This may lead to headaches, jaw pain and ear pain. Consider nightguards at night. Also make sure you drink lots of fluids, eat on time to see if that also helps with the headaches.

Trigeminal: This may be a trigeminal neuralgia... Need to be evaluated to clarify diagnosis and to give the specific symptomatic treatment.
TMD: The jaw pain is primary and you need a dentist who is knowledgeable in jaw and muscle problems related to the temporo-mandibular joint (jaw joint). The fact that your ear is directly behind the jaw joint makes you feel that the ear is involved. In reality, if you hearing has not changed and you have no drainage or tenderness in the ear canal, the jaw is your only problem.See 1 more doctor answer

Probably TMJ trouble: Temporal mandibular joint syndrome is common and often the result of excessive teeth grinding/clenching, usually during sleep. The TMJ is slight in front/upper are of your ear and inflammation here can cause pain into ear and jaw. If pushing on the TMJ area and widely opening/closing your mouth causes pain, then it is likely tmj. Motrin/aleve, use of night guard may help. Consult doc. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer

Hmmm: We often have to "pay" for the best care. Most things in life are not free. It will be your choice to find a competent practitioner in your area who can help you regardless of insurance coverage or live with the discomfort. You might be able to seek care in a local dental school for treatment at a reduced rate. However, expect the process to take longer.See 2 more doctor answers
