The Relationship Between Jaw Tightness and Bruxism

If you have a stiff or tight jaw, you might be unknowingly grinding your teeth. This is a condition known as bruxism and it should be diagnosed by a dentist. One of the most common causes is top and bottom teeth that are misaligned.

Key points about bruxism:

– You may have unexplained headaches.

– Your jaw and even the surrounding teeth could become sensitive.

– You may have temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.

“Teeth grinding can have numerous causes, with the most common being stress and an improper bite.”
