Teeth a concern: Diffuse jaw pain can have several reasons, teeth are one of the more common ones, especially impacted teeth (under the gums). The gums surrounding the teeth can be painful. The jaw joint, tmj, can be a reason for pain, higher on the suspicion meter if you note popping with opening your jaw. The salivary glands, submandibular, can be an etiology for posterior jaw pain.

Hello there, I am an adult and got sealants on my teeth one year ago. I am having tooth & jaw pain that sometimes gives me headaches. It radiates up into my head. Is it possible I would need a root canal? How likely is that scenario?

Sealent issues: It would be unlikely that the sealants caused the the pain, especially if the discomfort did not start for a year.
