When waking up with a stiff or sore jaw is an everyday occurrence, you must talk to a dentist about it. In many cases the problem can be attributed to teeth grinding (bruxism) during the night, and you may not even be aware you’re doing this.

Left untreated, bruxism can lead to further issues including:

– Tooth sensitivity

– Cracked or broken teeth

– Neck and shoulder pains

As teeth grinding usually occurs during sleep it is often regarded as not being particularly bothersome, but ignoring the problem can have serious long-term effects and should be treated and never ignored.
