Jaw is just really sore. Teeth feel trapped into changing occlusion. Are my teeth moving around? Had light tooth bonding and polishing front teeth set
Bite effects jaws: If jaw soreness occurred after the bonding procedure, than a slight excess of material on the back of the upper front teeth or top of the lower front teeth can cause a premature contact that can alter the muscle pattern of lower jaw closure, and create the symptoms you describe. Ask your dentist to re-evaluate the occlusal contacts of your front teeth for heavy contacts. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
