Hello and welcome to hcm,

The JAWache may be due to-
bone loss.
periodontal infection.
root pieces remaining within the tooth.
Get a thorough clinical as well as x-ray examination.
Root pieces has to be extracted if present.
Massage your gums with gum tone gel.
get your teeth cleaned.
Take vitamin c rich fruits and supplements.
Take care.

Dentist Dr. Qazi Ammara's  Response

Thanks for asking the query,

Pain in the gums and jaw indicates infection in the area followed by abscess formation.
There could be a chance of some broken root particle left in the socket to rule out the cause x-ray is required.Drainage of abscess by the Dentist is required.

I would suggest you to visit the Dentist and take an x-ray of the tooth.
Take tab Augmentin 625mg and tab Aceclofenac serratiopeptidase twice for three days.

Go symptomatic treatment of lukewarm saline gargles, use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.
