Why does my jaw sometimes hurt?

Pain in the jaw is referred to as temporomandibular joint disorders or TMJ. The pain can be caused by any of the following:

Overuse injuries  caused by either chewing gum, clenching the jaw from stress, and grinding your teeth during sleep.

Toothache or periodontal disease 

It can also be associated with headache, neck pain, and/or clicking or popping noises when opening or shutting the jaw.

Make an appointment to determine the correct cause of your pain and the dentist can recommend remedies.
