TMJ pain, bite
If crowns are too low or high it can have an impact on the surrounding joint and muscles. I would suggest to get a second opinion as the condition of your bite.

While jaw pain can be caused by a bad bite, it is usually the result of a bite that is off due to a tooth that is too high. It sounds like you dentist has checked you bite and that does not seem to be the issue. I would recommend returning to your dentist to have the teeth evaluated to rule out a possible fracture. He/she may need to refer you to a specialist. I hope this helps. Follow me on Realself for more questions and answers.
