What exactly is sprained tooth syndrome? Can it occur if a person vigorously chews a large wad of sugarless gum often over a short period of time? I have been chewing a lot of gum the past few days - stress-related, I suppose - and have noticed my jaws and teeth feel achy or sore now. I stopped chewing the gum last night, but I'm wondering how long it will take for the achiness to go away and what I can do to manage it in the meantime.
