I went to a dentist, who told me that I could get a night
guard in case I clenched my teeth, that I had wisdom teeth that could be causing pain
, and that I had two cavities in my molars on that side.
I got my wisdom teeth removed, thought for a few days it had solved the problem, but it didn't. I got fitted for a nightguard, but haven't picked it up yet. The thing is--my pain is generally less in the mornings until I start to talk, eat, etc.
