Have your teeth been hurting every time you wake up in the morning? Does it also start to reduce as the day progresses? The idea of being drawn out of your summer beach dream by an alarm clock might seem a bit bearable, but the latter changes when you immediately wake up with sore teeth.
This occurrence may string a headache along, which causes a lot of general discomfort. Before you start cooking up the worst thinking you are alone, you should understand that waking up with sore teeth is a very common occurrence among people.
Waking up with sore teeth is not the best way to start your day; you might not even be able to have breakfast or brush your teeth in peace. Furthermore, if you suffer from Bruxism, a lot of damage can occur. What are some of the reasons that can lead you to waking up with your teeth sore?
Some Possible Reasons
Do you sleep with your mouth open? If so, this could be the reason. Sleeping with your mouth open dries your mouth and leaves you at risk of getting oral cavities. If this is you, you need to visit us often so that we can help you deal with the issue and keep your teeth healthy. Another common cause of sore teeth is clenching and grinding of teeth during the night.
To avoid damaging your teeth, you should visit us to get a pair of recommended night guards. If you eat hard foods at night and fail to brush your teeth before sleeping, the particles will get stuck between the teeth or the cracks. When sleeping, these particles will have a negative effect and you may wake up with sore teeth. Making sure that you brush and floss your teeth before sleeping is very important in maintaining good oral hygiene.
If you believe none of the reasons mentioned above are the cause of your sore teeth, please book an appointment with us. Apart from doing a close examination of your mouth, we will also give you more advice on how to avert the problem.
