Hello and welcome.
Thanks for writing your query.
Pain in front of the ears and jawline can be seen due to several reasons such as:
problems like dislocation of the joint, fractures
,inflammation in the TMJ area or disocclusion.
Altered biting habits may lead to pain in front of ears. This makes mouth opening, biting and swallowing difficult.
Night grinding of teeth known as BRUXISM
leads to occusal disharmony and TMJ problems and causes pain and discomfort.
These are the possible reasons, but exact diagnosis can be made only after clinical examination. So please visit a dentist
and get the evaluation done.
You may need an OPG radiograph done for you, which will help in ruling out the problem. Accordingly treatment can be planned.
NIGHT GUARD is the prosthesis
which helps in minimizing the effects of bruxism habit.
Meantime, you can start with analgesics with anti inflammatory drugs to relieve pain.
I hope this helps.
