Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Such shooting pain is likely due to the nerve irritation at the jaw level. Trigeminal neuralgia is the likely diagnosis. Dental problem can cause this by irritation one of the nerve benches. You should see a neurologist ideally for further evaluation. Medications like Gabapentin can be used to adequately control the pain.
