Jaw pain has become a big issue for a lot of people nowadays.
Many people grind their teeth at night or clench their teeth by day and night. These issues can lead to jaw-pain, tooth wear, teeth fracturing and cracks causing pain and sensitivity.
It is important that these issues are diagnosed early and when this is the case a Dentist can provide advice and treatment.
Treatments can include exercises; others require the provision of a night-guard to protect the teeth and jaw joint (known as the temporomandibular joint) and some cases require referral to a specialist.
