Jaw Pain

I wake up often in the morning with jaw pain. It feels like I put pressure on my teeth while sleeping. What can be the cause and what can I do?

Dear Memi and Misty!

Your problem sounds to me like bruxism (grinding of the teeth). You can find more about this in our blog. I would suggest you visit a doctor who specializes in jaw joint treatment.

All right, I will see a dentist specialized in jaw joint. Actually I had no idea that there are specialists for that! Can anybody who has been in the same situation recommend a doctor in or close to Miami???

I have the same thing.. but I guess not that serious by me. Only happens sometimes, usually when I sleep in awkward positions.
