Hi There,

My suggestion to you is to get an OPG take ASAP. This will reveal the cause of jaw pain/bleeding.

The three possibilities are:

a) Root remnants

b) New decay

c) Gum infection

As soon as the origin of pain is located,treatment can be initiated.
Meanwhile use DOLOGEL CT ointment in the affected area to reduce discomfort

Thanks & Take Care
