Why am I feeling jaw pain? You aren't the only one, with lots of us grinding and clenching more than usual during these uncertain times, without even being aware of it.
Some of the most common causes are:
- Chronic muscle tension associated with clenching or grinding of the teeth
- Habits such as chewing gum
- Stressed jaw posture at work or during sleep
Symptoms may also be affected by:
- Emotional distress
This can cause long-term damage to your jaw joints and any signs or symptoms should be reported promptly to your orthodontist.
