Does Your Jaw Ache?

When an aching jaw is due to a dental rather than a medical condition, there are a few likely suspects that are causing the problem. Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is the most common cause of an aching jaw, but other causes include: – Tooth abscess – Cavity – Gum disease Abscesses, cavities and even gum disease (when caught early) require treatment by the dentist. Bruxism will require long-term care including fitting a mouthguard to be worn during sleep. In some cases, acupuncture can be used as a method to alleviate grinding. Hypnosis can also be effective for some patients.
