Hello. How can I help? do you have a question? Dr Frank

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm curious what could cause a tightness or even the feeling of swelling (although none visible) under my jaw line. It doesn't seem to be as prevalent in the morning, but gets more noticeable as the day wears on.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've read a little about TMJ, and about having an abscessed tooth. The symptoms don't seem to fit exactly.
