At times when I open my mouth, or else or during chewing my left jaw clicks, I hear a locking sound. There is no pain or swelling in and around that area. This has been happening constantly since last week, otherwise it has happened quite erratically since a year almost. Like I said, no pain. When I kept my fingers infront of my left ear and opened my mouth, the joint feels like it's moving outward, the same doesn't happen on the right side. Please explain a probably diagnosis and whom I have to consult if I may have to. (People around me said it's calcium deficiency is that possible)
8 months ago I extracted one of my lower right sided 2nd molar teeth also the wisdom tooth is coming very near from the extraction side and it seems that it will occupy that space.Can i leave it without an implant.Leaving a tooth without implant does change any facial look.
If i will go for an implant how much it costs to me
Have a huge pain due to wisdom teeth, pls suggest what to do. I saw that it is better to remove, but I dont want to remove teeth. How to subsidize the pain?
I wore braces for a year and a half . After that my dentist put the retainers behind my teeth. After a few months the wire came out so I had to get it put again. But that wasn't put properly and due to repeated to touching of the lower jaw and the retainers, my upper teeth have come front. Now it kind of looks bad and now I also have jaw inflammation . The ENT told me that it was because of improper biting which was caused due to the front bite. So , should I get braces again to correct my teeth ?
I have crooked teeth since my childhood. I got to about the braces to fix my teeth. But the duration of that is nearly 2 years. Is there any other alternative for the braces like surgery or something?
