Our expert says:
He probably gnashes his teeth at night when sleeping and has TM joint inflammation in the morning ( this is the joint between the jaw and the skull just in front of your ear) The pain can spread down to the middle of the lower jaw. Let his GP or dentist look at this - this can also cause headaches and tooth abcesses/cracked tooth enamel. They can make a bite plate for you to sleep with to reduce the stress on the joint and protect your teeth as most people do this unconsciously!
