Why it is Important to Consult a Dentist for Jaw Ache

If you wake up with an aching jaw, you should talk to your dentist right away. The jaw ache can indicate serious problems that can damage your teeth. Jaw ache can also lead to muscle tension and migraines. Your dentist can advise on the best treatment plan to prevent jaw ache.

Key takeaways:

– Teeth grinding or clenching when asleep or due to stress are the principal causes of jaw ache.

– Your dentist may decide it is best to wear a fitted mouthguard at night to protect the teeth.

– Dental problems such as cavities, abscesses and gum disease can also lead to jaw ache.

“Ongoing grinding can cause sensitivity and weakening of the tooth structure, as well as cracks and breakages. Further consequences can come in the form of muscular pain in the neck and shoulders and even headaches.”
