What Are Mouth, Jaw and Facial Infections?

Infections often occur in the mouth and jaws due to bad teeth, gum disease, growths, cysts, medications or trauma. This results in pain and swelling. It may also cause fever, fatigue, difficulty swallowing and speech issues. Infections often require urgent treatment. Your doctor will examine you to determine the cause of your infection.
