YOUR JAW SHOULD NOT ALWAYS BE SORE
Your jaw should not always be sore when it comes to everyday tasks. It should not be sore unless there is a reason, such as breaking it, spraining it or another specific reason.
When it hurts from talking, sleeping, eating or any other activity, then you need to have the problem looked at by a dental professional. They will provide you with more information on not only why it hurts, but how you are able to fix the problem so you are no longer in pain.
Jaw Pain Should Not Be an Issue
Jaw pain should never be an issue for you or anyone else. When you move the jaw, the hinges on the sides of your mouth should smoothly open and close. This should not present any pain.
Sometimes when the jaw is clasped too tightly, such as when you sleep, this can cause discomfort upon waking. You do not want to worry about having this issue.
Another reason can be that the cartilage that normally cushions the jaw bones when they move might be wearing down. You will need to have a series of tests ran to find out if this is something that can be fixed to provide you with even more comfort.
Sometimes surgery may be required to fix jaw issues, but every person and problem is different, so it is important to think about what you are getting from the jaw pain felt.
