Swaying jaws

I had gone to see an ENT because of acute ear ache that was spreading to the entire left side of my face. After an initial investigation he said that everything is fine with my ear and apparently its my jaws that are swaying that is creating the problem. I have never heard about swaying jaws. What does it imply?

Hi there!

‘Swaying Jaws’ is a vague term. This could be an issue related to instability of the the temporo-mandibular joint, causing referred pain to the ear. The treatment approach would depend on the precise abnormality. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
