What causes a swollen jaw?
A swollen jaw can result from dental abscesses, infection or trauma from an injury. Jaw swelling is often accompanied by severe tooth pain, difficulty swallowing, opening your mouth or fever. Prompt emergency dental care is crucial as the infection can progress deeper and cause permanent damage.
