Why do my teeth and jaws hurt every morning?

Woman holding jaw from pain | Dentist Glendale CAIn our Glendale, CA dental office, we commonly treat tooth and jaw pain.

Teeth grinding and clenching while asleep, commonly called bruxism, are among the top reasons people wake with jaw and tooth pain. Left untreated, bruxism can lead to enamel erosion, wear on teeth, cavities, breakage, tooth loss, and is even associated with temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) or (TMJ). 

TMJ means the hinge-like joint that connects your jaw to your skull is not functioning properly. This can cause headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, locked jaw, and clicking sounds in the joint when speaking or chewing.  

We offer successful treatments for teeth grinding in Glendale, CA. 

Our top Glendale dentist creates custom nightguards, which have saved a lot of smiles. These comfortable nighttime appliances gently thrust your lower jaw forward to prevent grinding and clenching during sleep. 

Our custom nightguards in Glendale, CA are known for ease of wear and provide a gentle remedy to help you get the sleep you need without the pain. 

The first step is scheduling a consultation with our Glendale, CA dentist!
