Front Tooth Slightly Loose
Closing gaps: If the gap is especially wide, or you have multiple cosmetic issues to correct, your dentist may recommend braces or other options. If the teeth in question are damaged, then cosmetic dental crowns or veneers may be recommended with or without braces. However, if you simply want to close a small gap, bonding might be a good option. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
Right canine tooth wearing down becoming sharp and losing fullness. Got front tooth bonding for chip. What can I do to preserve canine tooth. Chewing?
2 additional points: My colleagues already gave you some very thorough and excellent answers. Without actually being able to clinically examine you, we can only give you some general advice. Some patients clench and grind their teeth even when awake, and we cannot always add bonded fillings that won't constantly break off. Two other options are a crown or having to live with some wear facets on your teeth. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If front 2 teeth used to be longer in front and bottom teeth rest behind them. Would dent grind 2 teeth bc of small chip and bonded 1 tooth unlock tmj?
Maybe: There is more and more research in the last 10 years indicating the bite has little to do with the tmj. If your TMJ is locked changing your bite will not help and by locked i assume you mean you can't get your mouth open. To unlock a bite, the jaw may need manipulation with possible anesthesia either in the joint or systemically. I would suggest seeing aa dentist who can diagnose the problem. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Had bottom wisdom teeth extracted over three weeks ago. All teeth still sensitive. Bottom teeth/jaw area feels tight. Normal?
Can be.: Often it takes quite a while to become comfortable after surgery. Individuals vary in their ability to be stretched open and remain there and therefore vary in recovery time. Do not keep testing it by overopening. You may massage the muscles where the tightness is to see if it will help. Sensitivity is usually due to exposed root where tissue healing. Call Surgeon if doesn't improve. Good Luck. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
