I just went to eat something and have a noticeable pain at the back of my left jaw. It's noticeable when I bite and around the ear/jaw area. I brushed my teeth not long ago as going out.
I know no one can answer but wonder if this the start of an abcess, wisdom teeth coming through, or need for root canal.
What can I do to prevent infection?
