Re: Jaw hangs lower on one side/ is slanted

jbuilder2
if I understand you correctly, the upper jaw slant is called "an occlusal cant" and in most cases only treatable with surgery. Especially since you agree that you have probably had it before.
My lower jaw used to be flat before all this started, and even now it is changing positions. The left side will hang lower most of the time, but sometimes the right side will be lower - and that is when I usually have muscle cramping on the right. I am very confused and frustrated with this. How do I make it stop? I know it should not be that way and is unlikely to do any good to my joints.
