Thanks for posting your query.

Unbearable pain in lower jaw during flight can be due to-periodontitis or deep dental caries with open cavity.

I would advice you to get a thorough clinical evaluation .

Deep scaling as well as pocket eradication has to be done.

Exposed cavities as well as roots of teeth has to be restored.

Also get the ears checked for any infection associated.

Hope this helps.
