Why does my jaw hurt in the morning?

Morning discomfort or pain associated with your jaw is commonly associated with grinding or clenching your teeth at night. These parafunctional habits have many causes and are typically associated with dental or other health-related concerns, including sleep bruxism, sinusitis, TMJ disorder, carious lesion (a cavity), impacted wisdom tooth, and an infected or abscessed tooth. Consulting with a dentist to determine the best course of treatment is recommended to eliminate or reduce the potential damage and pain caused by grinding your teeth.
