hello and welcome to hcm,
secondary infection after TB is very rare in the jaw. you have not mentioned exactly that what sort of infection had been told to you by your dentist and I guess it must be jaw bone.
you can consult to ORAL MEDICINE specialty in this case. they will the report and well guide you as the problem you have mentioned is not specified.
I find this answer helpful
