Can i fix my face assymetry due to tmj? i am 16 years old and have tmj for 3 years now. i suffer from headache, ear with neck pain (but from time to time), joint popping sound. i am still able to yawn and open my mouth, but of course to a limit?

Other way around: Asymmetry may cause TMJ. Have your parents take you to an Zoraida Surgeon for examination and evaluation.
