Small Chip In Front Tooth
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?

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
