Do you ever experience any jaw or facial pain? Is jaw or facial pain often present when you wake up in the morning? Depending upon the time of day in which you experience your jaw or facial pain, or the symptoms associated with it, it may be caused by numerous ailments and conditions. Jaw pain can arise due to sinus problems, toothaches, injuries, arthritis, or because of oral health care ailments such as bruxism, periodontal disease, or a TMJ disorder.

If you suffer from jaw or facial pain, various treatments can be given. Visit your dentist to learn what a mouth protector can do for keeping your teeth in their proper alignment and your jaw stabilized. In addition, numerous forms of medications and treatments can be used to help treat jaw or facial pain, such as muscle relaxants, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory drugs. Furthermore, oral health exercises can help strengthen your jaw. If you suffer from severe jaw or facial pain, it may be linked to an underlying oral health condition.
