Pain in lower jaw
Some 10 years back i got my root canal done on one left upper teeth. Doctor asked not to bite any hard candy from that side As i was too young..i stopped chewing from my left side Now that i noticed a slight difference in my lower cheek muscles my left cheek is smaller than my right cheek. And so i started chewing food from my left jaw But i tend to wound the corner gums while biting There is 1 teeth gap left in the corner of lower left jaw .but no gap in upper left jaw And i can feel pain in my lower jaw too..if i stop chewing it gets alright..what should i do Should i continue chewing from my left ?
