Aches and pains in the jaws, oral or facial regions can be due to a whole range of disorders and diseases including infections, nerve pain (neuralgia), jaw joint (TMJ) dysfunction, muscle pain or complex disorders like fibromyalgia.

As pain is a generally undesirable symptom that can cause a lot of distress and may be a sign of an underlying disease/ condition, it is important not to ignore pain.

Check-ups usually involve both clinical/ physical examination and radiological examination to determine or narrow down the cause of your pain in order to have appropriate treatment rendered.
