jaw pain

What would cause my bite to shift to the right and pain at the joint of my jaw on the right? Could this change account for my having a constant eadache?

Occlusal interference is the most common culprit of bite shift. If there is no ear pathology identified by ENT, ear problem is one of the common presentations of temporomandibular disorder. Seeing an ENT and tmj specialist is advised.

Onset of headache at age of 62, which is attributed to tmd, is extremely rare. I would suspect intracranial pathology. Seeing a neurologist is advised.
