Jaw Clicking FAQ
I recently had two crowns put into the left back upper teeth. They fit perfectly onto the original teeth, but don't seem to fit into my mouth.
My jaw started clicking the minute they went in. After about three return trips and some adjusting of my bite (which was never the same), my dentist recommended going to a chiropractor. The chiropractor manipulated my neck and found an old injury. However my jaw still clicks and my lower front teeth seem to press onto my upper front teeth.
The general feeling is that the teeth are too big. How do I get my dentist to do something about it without hedging? I paid a lot of money for the crowns and I'm very worried. ... Visitor from Gold Coast, Queensland Australia
Unfortunately, this can happen when only treating a few teeth and not looking at the big picture. You may have had a problem all along, and the dental treatment revealed the problem.
At this point you need to find someone that knows neuromuscular dentistry. They can analyze you and your bite, and may even be able to get the noises in the jaw joint to stop (but I cannot promise that).
You should find someone that is LVI trained (and the Las Vegas Institute). They can be found at www.leadingdentists.com or www.lvilive.com in the alumni search. I know some people in Australia are trained in this manner.
Your dentist may need to remake the crowns, but it may only be worse when you are done. I don't know where the gold coast is, but I know Dr. Brett Taylor in Sydney really knows his stuff. He is LVI trained and has the right equipment to help you.
