I just came back from the dentist a few days ago with two new fillings. Now I have a canker sore on the left, lower side of my mouth (not on the gum), and I'm experiencing jaw pain in the same area, under my neck. I can feel where the vein is pulsating with my fingers. My teeth don't hurt when I chew on that side, and there's no sensitivity to temperature (obviously the canker sore stings when things get into it). The jaw pain didn't start until after I started using mouthwash in addition to brushing. Could I have accidentally started some sort of infection when the mouthwash got into my canker? My bite isn't off either, so I really don't think I've cracked a tooth. Please help!
