Hello! I’m Allan Acton, DDS, of Cary Family Dental in Cary. I have been practicing quality general and cosmetic dentistry since 2003. Today’s post focuses on malocclusion, or bad bite.
Jaw pain may be caused by sinusitis. Sinusitis is the inflammation of the tissues that line your sinuses, and when these tissues are inflamed, the sinuses exert pressure on surrounding areas. If the inflamed sinus is near the jaw, pain in the jaw joint may result. This commonly happens with a cold or allergies.
