I just got back from the dentist, who took a cast of my teeth so she can make a mouth guard for me to wear at night. I was aware that I clench my jaw at night because I wake up with an aching face every morning, but it is apparent on my teeth too she said. She also took x rays of both sides. I have to go back next week for the guard and the results of the x rays. No dentists has ever mentioned this before, and I know I have been doing this for the past six months to a year. Is this connected to an inflammatory arthritis do you think or something totally coincidental and separate? Does anyone else suffer from this?
