If you wake up with a stiff aching jaw, talk to your dentist. This can indicate problems:

– You may have gum disease or an abscess which must be treated.

– You may grind or clench your teeth while sleeping, and if untreated can result in sensitivity and even cracked teeth.

– A mouthguard created by your dentist can help prevent teeth grinding and clenching.

Don’t ignore an aching jaw as over time, the condition can result in significant damage to teeth.
