This could be a result of grinding your teeth at night and/or clenching your jaws.  A simple, yet effective remedy is a nightguard, a comfortale retainer type covering that fits over your teeth.  This will relieve your discomfort and will help to preserve the enamel on your teeth, saving you hundreds of dollars in future dental costs.  Relief is one appointment away.
