can tmj make your teeth hurt bad

I know I clench my teeth. Lately my teeth started hurting but only one one side. It's the same side my neck back and head hurt on. I teeth ache so bad and when anyhting cold hits one upper and one lower one I want to scream.
Does tmj affect a person this bad? Will this pain go away or is it a permanet thing?

Again, try the nightguard and see if that will help with the pain.  If not, it may require a root canal.  You can have some pain on clenching and wake up with headaches.  These symptoms can be relieved by the use of a nightguard.
