Persistent jaw pain can be the result of conditions that can have a damaging effect on your teeth and gums. This type of pain and discomfort can be treated in several ways.

Key takeaways:

– If it’s caused by teeth grinding, you may be asked to wear a mouthguard.

– Grinding caused by stress can be treated with acupuncture.

– In some cases, Botulinum toxin (Botox) injections are prescribed to relieve tension.

Your dentist will be able to recommend a treatment that works best for your particular situation.
