Overcoming Advanced Lower Jaw And Upper Teeth Are Buckled?
, Is it true that we have a bad habit since we were young – one of the examples is using our mouth to breathe – can we make our jaws move forward? Then how to overcome it? Can you use only braces? I used to be very cold often (until now), so I always breathe using my mouth, love to bite my nails, and other bad habits. If I pay attention, my lower chin is a bit longer, so that my upper teeth adjust and finally more into the torso. If I open my mouth, my lower chin is like the sound of bones shifting, not only that, when I open my mouth, my lower jaw is slightly tilted. But then it’s normal “just when you close your mouth. That’s why huh? Thank you doctor!
Hello Marcalline, thank you for the question.
Some improper habits in the use of teeth and mouth can indeed cause changes in the shape of the jaw and face, if done for a long time. Examples of these bad habits are:
Mengulum finger when still a baby or toddler Too long to drink milk from a pacifier bottle Breathe through the mouth Chewing with front teeth Improper positioning of the tongue when talking These habits are often not realized and are underestimated because the effect is not immediately visible. If done over a period of years, then the shape and composition of the teeth and jaws will change. Changing the shape of the jaw will change the shape of the face. As a result the position of the teeth can go forward or the teeth can fall apart, sometimes the teeth become tenuous and easily swayed. You can consult with a dentist regarding this matter. The doctor will assess whether you need to use orthodontic wires or not.
Regarding the sound in your jaw, there may be a jaw shift or injury to the jaw. This may change the shape of your jaw when opening and closing. If left untreated, it can cause chewing and speech disorders. Consult this with the dentist.
Try to recognize your bad habits, then slowly reduce these habits. Hope this answer helps you. Regards.
