In brief: TMJ Muscle Spasm

It is possible that you have a dislocation of your TMJ (jaw joint) or a muscle dysfunction problem that is treated by a dentist.
The loss of teeth on your upper and lower left is giving you no support for the TMJ Muscle complex. Partial Dentures property constructed can give you back this support.

In brief: Multiple causes

Could be TMJ, muscle spasm, trauma to ridges from using them (rather than teeth) to chew, gum damage, and so many other causes.
Please see your Dentist for evaluation and appropriate treatment plan. Missing teeth should be replaces.

In brief: Grinding teeth

can occur due to anxiety and depression which are few of the side effects of lanzoprasol.
If you mean you are missing your back teeth, (that can affect the stability of the bite which has a negative effect on the TMJ), therefore, it can affect the muscles and nerves around it that can cause pain and discomfort. Even you're dentate and the bite is off, effect will be similar. Find a TMJ dentist.
