OTC Guard: I'm not a fan of OTC mouthguards... they never fit correctly and are not really adjustable. If your dentist is not comfortable treating TMJ issues with a custom bruxism guard, then it's time to seek a second opinion. Consult with an orthodontist who can advise you if any malocclusion is contributing to your TMJ issues. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

See a dentist: If you have facial swelling of the cheek that you notice when looking in the mirror, it would be very important to see a dentist to evaluate for an infection/abscess. There may or may not be pain associated with the tooth, but likely will also be associated with tooth pain in the mouth.

I've had a left eye twitch for about 1.5 months and now the muscles around my mouth on that side of my face twitch too. What's the cause?
Stress: Usually, facial muscle spasms are due to some stressor. However, certain medications can also cause twitching of facial muscles.

If no change, see your doctor for a complete evaluation. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Whenever I lie down I have these constant sometimes intense muscle movements: mouth, jaw, lower abdomen, and legs. What causes this?
That's a poser: Depends on how long you've had it. If it came on before the age of 25, it's idiopathic or familial. If it's recent e.g. 3 months, I don't know. I must confess I've never heard of positional nonkinesigenic dyskinesias if that's what your movements are; can't quite tell from your post. If it's recent you should see your doctor. Could be a basal ganglia lesion of some kind (speculating only here). Read more
