Why is there a small, sharp pain near ear and jaw area when I bite down?

This occurs only to the right side of my face

Report as

I've had a similar problem over the years. If your pain isn't dental related, it could involve a bit of a pinch of the nerve bundle going to the lower jaw area. Sometimes when I yawn the right side of my face feels like it's on fire.

Well if you are around 18, that is probably wisdom teeth.

Used WebMD.com or the app. It can help. But it does sounds like wisdom teeth. Try to see a dentist about it. If not, then try the app or the website

It's probably wisdom teeth but it's possible you have a cavity or just a sensitive tooth. Go to your dentist to see what it is for sure and what can be done about it.
