Many adults suffer from chronic jaw pain from causes such as toothache, teeth grinding or sinus problems, and this discomfort in your jaw can even result in a struggle to close or open your mouth.
If your jaw and teeth are not lined up correctly, and your teeth don’t fit on top of one another, it is referred to as ‘bad bite’. This can cause issues with your teeth and gums and can result in clenching of the teeth, teeth grinding and facial pains, headaches and clicking when biting or chewing.
Your dentist will ask you a number of questions to diagnose these pains, and about anything that triggers your jaw problems, such as chewing or yawning. They will also check whether you grind your teeth or bite your nails, as both of these can cause jaw problems.
We advise you to come along for an assessment so that the cause of the pain can be identified.
