Dentist 's  Response

Thanks for asking the query,

After reading your clinical history i suspect that you might had developed severe infection in the tooth
Pain in the jaw, neck, headache are due to dental reasons (radiating pain).
I would suggest you to visit the Dentist and get the checkup done take an x-rays of the tooth.
Depending upon the x-ray the treatment will be root canal treatment or extraction of the tooth.
Start with the course of antibiotics and analgesics.
Maintain a good oral hygiene use antiseptic mouthwash rinses twice daily.

Hope this helps out.
