Post Tight and sore jaw

My jaw tends to get really tight and sore maybe due to teeth grinding or something. I know several of my teet have been chipped because my bite is not correct. I've had braces and the orthodontist and dentist insist that my bite is correct. When in fact I get a little round mirror for teeth and look at my bite and it looked like a certain lower tooth is way higher than the others in the row and is causing pressure on that tooth when I close my mouth. I feel like that causes my jaw tension and soreness. Sometimes it feels really bad and almost numb.

What is the deal with my jaw ? The dentist and orthodontist think I am a jerk because I ask them about it every once in a while.

you know, i definitely think that it's time for you to look for another dentist who takes your complaints and concerns seriously.

if your teeth are chipping, you must be grinding and/or clenching at night. what other explanation could it be? unless someone keeps on punching you in the mouth while you're sleeping.

anyway, you've come to the right place.. im sure that someone's in your area -- miami, florida -- and can recommend a good dentist.

take care,

- saaraah.
