My Jaw Keeps Clicking And Is Worse In The Morning. Any Ideas On What This Could Be And How To Fix It?

Friday, June 13th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I have arthritis in my jaw but have not been seen or treated by a doctor. My jaw always clicks and is usually worse in the mornings (possibly grinding my teeth when I sleep). Today my jaw is very painful on the right side and it is getting worse as the day goes on. My bite has suddenly changed this evening and won’t go back. Any ideas what this could be and how to fix it? Or where to start with getting treated? Thank you.

My Jaw Clicks Which Affects How I Chew And Speak. Is This A Sign Of TMJ Disorder?

Friday, May 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark, I wonder if you could help me out. I have been receiving pain in my jaw and the left side of my head, and this is affecting how I chew my food and speak. It clicks sometimes when I open and close my jaw which is quite annoying and it is quite painful. I don’t have any other symptoms besides these. I do get toothache sometimes but on the other side of my jaw. This usually occurs on my left side which affects how I chew on that side. Is this a sign that I could have TMJ Temporomandibular joint dysfunction? Thank you.

What can be done for jaw problem?

Friday, February 5th, 2010
Q.
i have experienced ‘Jaw clicking’ for a few years, (left side) on 3 occasions after waking up, it has locked. I have never mentioned it, or discussed it with my dentist, as I have learnt to live with it.During my last check up it was noticed and they recommend a bite guard, I also need a plate (LL 5,6,7)the dentist said this could not be done until the clicking is cured,Could you confirm if this is correct? sadly i do not have much faith in them, during the check up they had a quick look with the mirror, a probe was not used, and no x-ray taken.many thanks,

Is surgery the only option for my overbite

Monday, December 21st, 2009
Q.
Hi, I am 21 and from Norfolk. I have just been and had a consultation about an over bite i have believing that it was sticky out teeth, turns out that it is not my teeth but my lower jaw 🙁 he said that i would have to have surgery if i wanted it corrected and that braces just wouldnt do much at all. he said that my overbite was 11mm and that the surgery would involve moving my lower jaw forward and probably my upper jaw back slightly. I am sure he said that this is available on nhs. i am now wondering if i heard correctly does this sound correct? Thanks

I have particles getting stuck between two crowns, what can be done?

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009
Q.
Dear Dr, I had two crowns put next to eachother on the lower jaw at the far back a year ago.While I was waiting with temporary ones they came out a few times and so I had to have them re-done and on the last occasion there were a couple of days with nothing on them. Ever since I always get meat trapped between the two crowns which can only be removed by flossing. This is awkward if I am out and so I have to have a vegetarian option or be careful to chew on one side only as it often feels uncomfortable with the meat stuck. My dentist says that nothing can be done and that he has the same problem. Is this correct? The original tooth was badly broken.

Post Orthognathic surgery my jaw has moved can this be reversed?

Friday, November 27th, 2009
Q.
I had orthognathic surgery where my lower jaw was meant to be moved only. I found out after the surgery my upper was moved too…impacted and advanced and has caused unwanted facial changes. Can this be reversed. Can my jaw now be setback and downgrafted…I do not wish to take legal action…just to get this rectified.

Is bridge treatment the answer for my jaw gap?

Thursday, November 5th, 2009
Q.
I have a gap on my bottom jaw. The 2nd tooth never grew when I was growing up. My dentist says I could have a bridge but I am reluctant to have good teeth either side filed down. The gap is not very big but is annoying and the tooth from the upper jaw is growing downwards to fill the gap. Would an implant work? I had an implant for a bigger missing tooth on the uppper jaw which is great but this gap is smaller.

Cost for reconstructing my teeth following periodontal disease

Thursday, November 5th, 2009
Q.
I am about to start looking for a dentist to do some reconstructive work on my teeth. I am about to lose many teeth due to genetic periodontitis. I am willing to have some existing teeth pulled if it makes the procedure easier – I do not hold out much hope for most of them. My preferred option would be bridges secured by implants, if possible. Can you advise me of the options I may have and the cost implications of same.
