Not only can jaw pain be annoying, but it could also signal an issue with your teeth or gums. It is always important to speak with a dentist at the first signs of trouble because:
– A joint disorder commonly referred to as TMD (temporomandibular jaw disorder) could be the root cause.
– Unconsciously grinding your teeth is often an underlying factor in jaw pain.
– There are many times when jaw pain could be a symptom of gum disease.
“Teeth grinding, which people may do when they’re awake but do more often when asleep, can damage the teeth and lead to jaw pain.”
