Avatar m tn m being treated for it by a psyciatrist but i have also been clinching my jaw and have started to break teeth. My disorder causes stress to feel worse than it probably is and i become agitated and can't relax well and I feel stuck in a loop. I have tried a mouthguard when i sleep but I do it when I'm awake too.
Avatar n tn As you may guess, after more than five to seven years of this, my jaw and teeth are really screwed up and there is still pressure in my ears. My jaw joints hurt, i can pop both of them similar to cracking a finger knuckle, and it feels like there is fluid in both sides. In addition to this, my two lower middle front teeth have worn through the enamel and now have a chisel like sharp edge on top. Because the edges are thin, they have chipped and are now serrated like a steak knife.
Avatar f tn Almost 2 years ago I had my lower left wisdom tooth removed, ever since I have had problems with my jaw. My jaw now pops, clicks, grinds, and makes crunching noises as well as locks. It causes me a lot of pain at times and seems to now be very sensitive to cold weather. I also notice that when opening and closing my mouth it seems like the alignment of my jaw is wrong, the right side appears to pop out when my mouth opens and the left does not.
698356 tn?1240150727 At first I thought it was tooth infection making my jaw sore and went to the dentist. He said my teeth were sensitive but fine. My doctor then diagnosed TMJ and prescribed low dose anti inflamatories and told me to rest my jaw, not press my teeth together and to eat soft foods. After months of this I went to a different dentist (as mine was away) with a tooth ache and was told I needed a root canal. TMJ disapeared after Root canal. I know I am one of the lucky ones.
Avatar f tn Braces are generally not helpful to solve your problem. If you have top wisdom teeth and lower second and wisdom teeth present, the first thing is to remove top wisdom teeth.Occlusal appliance is generally very effective for your problems.However, not all dentists can fabricate a perfected occlusion through night guard. You need to find a hjghly competent dentist to fabricate a night guard for you.
Avatar n tn I wear dentures which are around 3 years old and have a white line where the pain is where I used to grit my teeth. My dentist cant find anything wrong. Can anyone please help.
Avatar f tn Do you have any problems with swelling that creates difficulty in breathing as well? It sounds like your wisdom teeth are giving you problems based upon your dentist's evaluation. I highly recommend getting an oral surgeon to take a look and remove them if necessary. It is VERY dangerous when there is problems with swallowing and/or breathing associated with dental infections.
Avatar f tn My sister is 54 and has at least 4 teeth that are rotted down to the gum line. Cant his cause other problems and if so what are they? She has no dental insurance and we don't known what to do with her as she don't take care of herself properly.
Avatar m tn The specialist I am seeing has developed a treatment plan that includes grinding down some of my back teeth to relieve the malocclusion, then adjusting my bite with Invisalign braces to move my lower front teeth forward. He says these teeth are crowded and have grown too long altering my bite and stressing my jaw muscles.
Avatar f tn m so sorry. It must be agony. I have had a lot of jaw/teeth problems. I grind my teeth and over the years, I have had 15 root canals and crowns, two oral surgeries and constant *replacement* and *restoration* on my teeth. I get shooting pains in my jaw and ears and sometimes the side of my head. I don't have it constantly, but the past year it has gotten worse. I have fibromyalgia, so they are telling me it's related. I'm so sick of dentists, oral surgeons and specialists.
Avatar f tn Thanks. :) I'm actually getting pain in the teeth now, both on the upper and lower jaw, when I eat. Not really sure what's going on but hopefully it will be better tomorrow.
Avatar m tn I was accidentally kneed in the jaw yesterday at Jiu jitsu practice and now my back teeth won't touch when I bite down. Only the front two teeth touch. There is a little pain and swelling. It doesn't feel like anything is broken or dislocated. Should I give this a day or two to see if the swelling goes down, or is this a sign of something more serious? Thanks!
Avatar n tn This condition is associated with repeated infections of the jaw which can lead to discharging sinuses from the mouth or skin over the jaw, loss of teeth and gradual destruction of the jaw.
Avatar n tn I am 45 years old, and have never experienced any significant TMJ problems. I had orthodontic treatment, and my wisdom teeth were removed, when I was a teenager. 7 days ago I felt a small amount of pain in my right jaw. There had been no physical injury, and I was not under any stress. I had been fighting a cold, and had some coughing / sneezing fits in the previous week. 5 days ago I awoke with difficulty closing my jaw.
Avatar m tn I have been having weird jaw and teeth discomfort that radiates up to my temple, cheek and sometimes my neck. The pain isn't constant, but around every ten seconds I feel pressures all around my jaw and from underneath my teeth. The thing that worries me is that there is no cause for it. I can go a few hours without feeling anything and then suddenly the discomfort will be there. I used to catch myself clenching my teeth a lot, but i don't do that anymore.
Avatar f tn My jaw has popped for several years now which has not bothered me to much other than the annoyance of it, However several months ago I started having pain in my teeth and jaw. I saw two dentist who took X-rays and explained it could be from grinding my teeth at night. They assured me that everything else looked fine. Since then, the pain has gotten worse and comes more often. I have been taking pain relievers everyday now, and sometimes more than once a day. The pain now also goes into my ear.
Avatar n tn Hi! About 4 months ago I bought a mouthpiece to wear at night for 2 reasons-- one, to help me breathe better, and secondly because I am a jaw clencher. I don't grind my teeth, but if I sleep in a certain position, I wake up with my lower jaw pushing outward against my upper teeth so hard that they hurt and ache for days. If I sleep in a normal position, the jaw muscles just ache with no tooth pain. The mouthpiece solved all that.
977806 tn?1249067346 One (or both, who knows) of the TX drugs causes bruxism, grinding your teeth in your sleep. Think it's the riba. The grinding can make your jaw hurt in the morning. I ground through a gold crown on TX. See if your dentist can make you a biteguard (also called night guard) so you don't ruin your molars while saving your liver.
Avatar f tn when she smiles her bottom teeth completely cover her top teeth i think it may be a protruding lower jaw than her teeth not being straight. hopefully i can get some answers Friday thanks for reply!
Avatar f tn I wonder if it is all from TMD (and its a fact I grind my teeth and wear a nightguard) and if it is do I have any hope? Can my jaw still be helped and maybe the rest of me. Thank you for your thoughts on this.
746512 tn?1388807580 I know TMJD has low success for surgery but can it be secondary to a structural problem that should be corrected by surgery? I've always had bad teeth and ortho work since I turned 6 years (now 20), I've only had problems with really really tight jaw muscles for the last 5-6 years. After the last set of braces (yes I've had more than one over the years), my overbite came back and my jaw shifted and now I have an improper bit.
Avatar f tn Yes, but I had a cavity and it was fine for me to have a local anesthetic and a filling. But I do know there is a condition you can get in pregnancy where your jaw gives you tooth pain, especially if you've had a clicky jaw before, and common around 1st trimester when the relaxin hormones kick in. You can probably google it.
Avatar f tn I appreciate the time you took to answer my question. Have a great day!
