Hi there,

Tightness in your jaws and pressure in your upper palate and face could be due to many reasons. I would be able to point a few close possibilities if you can please let me know the details of the problems i.e. when did it start, how did it start and what increases or decreases the tightness and pressure, how are your sleep patterns, what other medical conditions do you have, what drugs are you currently using, and whether you found relief if you are using any, etc.,

Please provide details and I will be able to answer your question.

Take care and have a lovely day!
