Common Questions and Answers about Sore jaw from grinding teeth


Avatar f tn Maybe your grinding your teeth when sleeping? My mom would complain about her jaw hurting/sore frequently, then I caught her grinding her teeth while napping...
Avatar f tn Hello mommies I have been having some teeth pain and my gums have been mildly bleeding which happined with both of my other pregnancys but I just uped my brushing and flossing and it went away. This time my teeth are sore when I get up in the morning and the bleeding is getting worse! My bf told me after I mentioned it that I have been grinding my teeth at night. Never have b4 anyone going through this? Or have you guys heard of grinding your teeth while pregnant?
Avatar n tn About a year ago I started clenching my jaw and grinding my teeth in my sleep. I realized I was doing this after waking up a few mornings with horrible headaches and pain in my jaw. My dentist fitted me for a mouth guard (which I wear every night) and then things seemed a little better. Well for the past 2 months I feel like I am doing it more than ever. I wear the mouth guard every night but I am waking up with jaw pain. Is there anything else I can do or take to alleviate this?
Avatar f tn Behind my last molar it is sore. My teeth do not hurt. Whatever it is has my throat hurting when I swallow ans feels like junk in my throat. My jaw hurts to open it and it wont ope all the way. I have a headache too. What is going on?
Avatar f tn For bruxism (grinding of teeth), you can get a gum shield to protect your teeth from being worn away from grinding when you sleep. The dentist usually makes it for you to fit over your bottom teeth. I do not know what the cost of that would be and whether it would be done for free if you are using a NHS dentist. You would have to ask the dental receptionist. Best wishes.
977806 tn?1249067346 One (or both, who knows) of the TX drugs causes bruxism, grinding your teeth in your sleep. Think it's the riba. The grinding can make your jaw hurt in the morning. I ground through a gold crown on TX. See if your dentist can make you a biteguard (also called night guard) so you don't ruin your molars while saving your liver.
Avatar n tn Over night however, I was extremely sick and on Wednesday the dentist changed my meds. On Thursday my face near my jaw really swelled but my teeth no longer hurt like they did. That pain is now bearable. Today I saw my doctor who also could see no obvious signs of infection even though my ear and throat now hurt. He said something about neuralgia and to go and see him on Monday if things don’t improve. Any idea as to what’s going on would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn the amount of pressure in night time grinding is what wears our joints and cracks our teeth. i cant tell you what to do but you need to discuss this with a dentist and if he suggests only wearing it during the day GET A SECOND OPINION!! if you get the splint issue worked out and you have pain in the muscles in the face and jaw sometimes physical therapy will help. good luck and let me know what happens.
Avatar m tn Hi everyone, anyone experiencing the teeth grinding/biting. Also I had a crazy breakout yesterday which was Wednesday, my shots are friday nights and normally my flu like symptoms are just pretty bad saturday afternoon. on Wednesday i'm at work and about 10 am i started shivering to where it was like winter. I put a sweat shirt on but felt like the meds just creeped up on me, 5 days after my shot.

644083 tn?1282604175 Hi there, back, head and shoulder pain can all be symptoms of the TMJ. We're all connected from head to to and if one is out of line, they all go out! I know how that feels. TMJ can happen for a lot of reason, but if your teeth are very crooked or the don't fit straight, it puts a lot of pressure on the jaw. It can happen if you've had an accident too, or from stress, or grinding at night. Uneven teeth can touch and make it very sore.
Avatar n tn (Temporomandibular joint disorder) This is very often caused by clenching or grinding our teeth, usually during sleep, but often while awake as well. (I am a very BAD teeth clencher!) Left undiagnosed and untreated, this can eventually lead to joint damage, sometimes very severe, but often the first clue is a sore, stiff jaw, especially in the morning, pain when we yawn or try to open our mouths wide. Sneezing could conceivably cause pain.
Avatar f tn I must clench my teeth. I do suffer from bad anxiety and depression. I started this way 2 years ago. I do find that I grit my teeth. When I wake up my jaws are tight and they stay that way all day. They are not real bad but I can tell their tight when I open and close my mouth. I have had a weird sensation for over a month that doesn't go away on the side of my head and into my ear. My ear feels clogged.
Avatar n tn It started as a general feeling of my teeth not fitting together properly. When I closed my jaw, my teeth didn't fit comfortably, as if my jaw had shifted. There was more pressure on my right side. Then, I noticed one night that I was grinding my teeth in my sleep. Not sure if this has reoccurred. Since then, I've been waking up with a dull head ache, and the feeling of misalignment has been constantly bothering me. I would clench my teeth during the day.
Avatar n tn I have been grinding my teeth at night when I sleep and it is causing jaw and tooth pain. I recently went to the dentist where we discussed a custom made mouth piece that I would wear at night. The only problem is that it cost about $800.00!!! There is anohter mouth piece that they can make that is a "lesser model" that is about $300.00.
Avatar f tn ) that is molded to fit over your two top front teeth and has a ridge for your bottom front teeth. This little gadget prevents your back teeth from touching and is nothing like the mouth guards I've seen advertised. No more grinding. For me, far fewer mornings with a mouth that won't open.
250084 tn?1303307435 s no decay, no abcess @ the roots, then you could be grinding your teeth, either at night, or, during any normal average stressed to da max kinda day. These could be completely without your knowledge. Your DDS may notice unusual wearing of your teeths surface, <<< (a good indicator of tooth grinding).
Avatar f tn A couple nights ago I started getting pain on my gum and soft palate (all upper left side). It was pretty bad, but it eventually went away and I fell asleep. When I woke up, no pain. But later in the day, it came on again, a bit stronger this time. It then went away and came back. When I woke up today (well technically yesterday it's 1:32 AM) it was a bit sore but no severe pain like before.
639543 tn?1297027634 My 4 month old German Shepherd keeps making this weird noise with his teeth, it isn't every time he bites down, but a majority of the time it sounds like his teeth are grinding together, or he's biting extremely hard, almost like his upper jaw and lower jaw don't match up. He doesn't seem to be in pain or anything, but is this normal, or something that needs attention??
Avatar f tn t it be better if the night guard was fitted to my *lower* jaw instead, because then the worn molars would be (more or less) better protected from this rubbing? When I had a previous night guard quite a few years ago, and it was fitted to my lower jaw... and my new one is fitted to the upper one... I'm confused! Also, I should note that these three adjacent molars are my only worn teeth. Many thanks for your advice!
Avatar n tn They will check muscles in the area of the TMJ, look for asymmetry or inflammation in your face, listen for joint clicking or scraping sounds, test the range of motion in your jaw, and examine your teeth for evidence of jaw clenching or teeth grinding. With the diagnosis they will determining which treatment or combination of therapies will work best for you. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Yes, bruxism (grinding your teeth while asleep) is one of the side effects of ribivirin. See about using a bite guard at night to stop that.
Avatar m tn Go to any pharmacy and purchase a night guard, which will keep you from grinding your teeth at night in your sleep. I made my Mom get one and it made a world of difference.
Avatar f tn Okay, so my cat has been having eating problems for about 2 and a half weeks now. He has gone from weighing 24 pounds to 10 pounds! He went to the vet when it first began, and all they noticed that was wrong with him was that he needed his teeth to be cleaned. He had to take antibiotics for it, but he's taken them before. There seems to be a strange noise coming from his mouth when he tries to eat, almost like his jaw is clicking or he's grinding his teeth. Could his jaw be out of place?
