Hello, I feel my jaw always hurts (on the right and left of the lower jaw in the neck with the neck) at the beginning of the initial meal, especially when the food is crunchy or hard texture. And that has happened for 2-3 months. And sometimes I also feel pain around my teeth and cheekbones. And today I feel my right jaw, which is also swollen, and when touched it feels pretty painful. When I open my mouth, it feels a little painful, especially in the swelling area. I also went to see a doctor and did an x-ray and the result is that my right jaw is in the middle and right while my left jaw is slightly forward. What do you think I am experiencing? Thank you so much I wait for the doctor’s response.

Hello, thank you for the question separately HealthReplies.com

Looking at the description you gave, chances are you have TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) or a joint disorder between your upper jaw and your lower jaw. This disorder can be located on its own joints, can also be located in the muscles around the jaw joint. Until now it cannot be known with certainty the cause of TMD, but there are several factors that can trigger this condition, including:

history of trauma / impact on the face
teeth grinding habits (whether consciously or unconsciously)
inflammation of the jaw joints
Messy teeth
excessive stress
etc

To find out the exact cause and the management that is appropriate for your condition, you should do a dental examination for further evaluation. However, given the current viral pandemic, you are only advised to go to the dentist only in emergency situations, such as pain and swelling in the teeth and mouth that cannot be relieved by regular medication, and excessive bleeding from the teeth. The following are some things you can do for now:

Try not to move your jaw much
Don't yawn or open your mouth too wide
Eat soft foods and don't need to chew too much for a while
Compress the area of ​​your jaw with a warm compress
Avoid chewing gum
Take pain relievers such as paracetamol if the pain you feel cannot be endured
Stop the habit of supporting the chin and also grinding teeth
When sleeping, avoid sleeping on one side
Reduce stress


So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
