    TMJ: Jaw sliding while sleeping

    Hi all,

    I had a dental implant surgery last year.
    Since then I notice that when I lie down to sleep, my lower jaw slides.
    If I am lieing down on left side, it slides to left.

    I also noticed that I instictively clench my teeth as a response to this sliding.
    Sometimes I clench on my front teeth and sometimes on my backteeth - I think it depends on the posture in which I am sleeping.

    This causes interrupted sleep ( because of breathing issues) and quite a bit of damage to my teeths.

    Has anyone else experiences similar issues?
    Any pointers/help would be highly appreciated?
