Infection, local pressure, decayed molar teeth, dental abscess, swelling... all of these things can happen slowly without you knowing they are developing...
Until eventually, you have the most universal symptom of all... your body's way of telling you something is wrong...
If you have jaw pain, or tooth ache, then you need to see your dentist. Having acute pain is the definitive way your body will tell you something bad has happened. You need to see a professional to have a whole range of tests and looks and histories taken, before he can make a diagnosis, and hopefully make an effective treatment plan.
But your professional is not there just to treat your pain. He's there to treat what has caused your pain. And everyone's reasons for having pain are different.
Because you are not in pain, doesn't mean that there is nothing wrong with you either. Some diseases like dental decay, or jaw cysts, grow and develop in a hidden way. Regular check ups aim to detect these hidden growths before they become apparent, and when they can be easily treated.
We are all vulnerable to disease, and we are all susceptible to developing disease. Let your professional look after you, and if you do have a problem, let them advise as to where best to go next.
