Bruxism: You may be grinding your teeth, causing undue stress on the surrounding bone. Please see your dentist for evaluation.

Migrating pain: Because of stress you may be grinding and/or clenching. See your Dentist to rule out any other pathology. An occlusal orthotic, commonly called a night guard, may be indicated.

Occlusal trauma: Fair percentage of people under stress exhibited clenching or grinding of their teeth. Prolonged clenching caused the teeth to come together for longer time and probably with greater force to the teeth and surrounding bone. This caused pain on the area that receive the trauma the most. A splint can spread the pressure and reduce focal trauma to an area. See dentist for evaluation & treatment.
