Why do I have jaw pain after mouth surgery?

Removal of front tooth and extensive bone surgery. I now have constant discomfort in jaw.

    Thanks for writing Janereg. For your protection, we cannot offer specific medical advice over the internet. I can say that RA can affect the jaw. This article from one of our contributors looks at jaw pain and RA, in particular the temporomandibular joint: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/jaw-pain-tmd/. Any new symptoms and pains should be brought to the attention of your doctor. Hoping you find some relief soon. Best, Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)
