Two nights ago I woke up with intense pain on my right side from what I thought was a cavity- it turns out I was clenching my jaw & grinding my teeth so hard that it was causing me pain & woke me up. I have had this problem in the past, & used to wear a fitted night guard my dentist recommended, but I lost it when I moved & didn't think I still had this problem as much anymore. Now I've been taking round-the-clock ibuprofen for the pain, my jaw is very sore & the teeth on my right upper side hurt anytime I bear down on them. Should I go in to see my dentist or should I wait it out to see if the pain lessens in a few days? Oh & I've since bought a new night guard at a pharmacy & have been using it the past few nights. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
