For the last few days the right side of my jaw just below my ear and cheek is very sore. I havent been chewing any foods harder than usual but my gums do bleed at times when i brush my teeth. Could the bleeding gums link to my sore jaw? There is so soreness in my teeth or inner lip. Just the jaw itself.

  • There can be various causes of jaw soreness. It can be because of erupting third molar. because of some gum problem ,decayed tooth It can be because of TMJ problem also. In the TMJ region some times because of trauma and infection the soreness can be there. It can be because of grinding of teeth also known as bruxism. But in that case it is on the both sides.
