The Jaw Always Rings And Feels Sore When Chewing?
I am 18 years old indeed I have teeth that are not normal / not neat and I have not done braces. It’s been a few months when I chew my left jaw it always sounds, when chewing I used to always chew food using the left side only but after I searched on google it turned out that it was because the Tmj joints were disturbed and I have also reduced hard food and have also chewed use the right side u0026amp; left. But until now my jawbone still keeps ringing, is it the cause of the teeth that are not neat? Please explain, thank you.
A jaw that sounds and feels very chewing can occur due to problems or interference with the joint that connects the jawbone and skull bone which is called the temporomandibular joint. This condition can cause symptoms such as sound in the jaw, difficulty closing the jaw, pain when opening the mouth, yawning or chewing, swelling around the joints and also stiffness when opening the mouth too wide.
For this reason, it is necessary to do an examination either at the doctor or at the dentist, an orthodontist to assess the condition you are experiencing. Later, the condition of the jaw will be assessed, whether it is carried out by physical examination and support, such as X-rays or making dental prints to assess whether the position of the upper and lower jaw is well positioned.
Later, in addition to providing pain relief, a retainer will also be made to fix the position of the teeth when closing so that the TMJ position returns to its position and the symptoms will decrease. Try to avoid supporting the chin, avoid eating foods that are too hard, avoid opening your mouth too wide, laughing too wide, and so on.
