Reasons Your Jaw Might Hurt When You Get Up Each Day
Posted on 2/23/2018 by Doctor Haigney
When you get up to start your day, you do not realize that the birds are chirping and the sun is shining.
You only realize that your jaw is painful and you are unsure why. Usually, this is caused by one or two things, especially when it happens right as you wake up.
By speaking with a professional dentist about the pain you experience in your jaw, you can find a treatment plan that works the best for you and the pain you would like to diminish.
Jaw Pain First Thing in the Morning
Having jaw pain first thing in the morning is never a good thing. You do not want to worry about not being able to speak, eat or smile because it is uncomfortable to do so.
Your jaw should never be in pain unless you have had an issue with it that you are aware of. Of course, just waking up and going throughout the day with it steadily getting better might be a cause of a few different things.
You might hold your jaw tight when you sleep at night. This is something that is common with people. You might clench your teeth together, or even grind them throughout the night. This causes the jaw to become stiff and painful in the morning when you go to move it. This is because it was clenched in this one spot throughout the entire night.
If you are experiencing jaw pain then you will want to speak with a professional that is able to provide you with the help that is needed.
Give us a call here and we can have our professional dentists speak with you regarding your jaw pain and what can be done. First, you have to find out the reason for the jaw pain and then a treatment plan specific to the problem can be provided.
