See DDS: It is possible that you may have shifted your jaw a bit and are biting differently, you may have injured your teeth, or you may have done some root damage. It would be smart to have a dentist look at your mouth to be sure you didn't damage your teeth in any way. Does it feel like you are biting correctly?
