If your jaw aches, it’s usually because of increased tension in the surrounding muscles. This is often related to stress, tiredness or anxiety, and is quite common among students taking exams. Painkillers and sedatives may relieve the symptoms in the short term, but you may also consider trying relaxation techniques. If you grind your teeth at night while you sleep, you could wear a ‘bite guard’ to limit any damage.
An aching jaw may also be a sign of a dental issue like an uneven bite. Contact our office today. We may be able to help you.
