Pain in the jaw once in a while


Hello Dentistry,
Since my last visits to the dentist, I have had pain in my jaw once in a while. It was the worst right after my last visits to the dentist. So I had not so big problems in 2-3 months. But now it starts to get worse again. It varies how long that go from. It might take 1 day or 3 weeks, sometimes I have pain in the jaw. It usually goes away again after 1 days. It is the most in the right side.
If I should have done something about it, should I go to my dentist or my general practitioner doctor?
With kind regards



Dear Jane,

It suggests that it is kæbeleddet in the right side that bothers you. Talk to your dentist about it. He can also rule out whether it comes from the teeth or the muscles.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Dentist Joan Olsen
