What Are Jaw Misalignment Symptoms?

Jaw misalignment can take many forms with symptoms that range from visual to sensory. We recommend our services if you experience the following symptoms:

  • Misaligned teeth: A crooked jaw will force its teeth out of position and cause overbites, underbites or crowding. 
  • Facial pain: Misalignment may cause pain while chewing, headaches or earaches.
  • Uneven tooth wear or decay: Your jaw’s position may cause more friction in certain areas of your mouth.
  • Poor dental health: Misaligned teeth allow bacteria to resist brushing and flossing.

How Can Jaw Misalignment Happen?

Your jaw’s development is subject to numerous physical and genetic factors. Misalignment can result from any of the following: 

  • Malocclusion: When the upper and lower teeth don’t match up, their positions can influence growth around the entire jaw.
  • Genetics: Some misalignments are hereditary. A patient born with an upper jaw that’s smaller than the lower jaw or vice-versa may naturally develop jaw misalignment.
  • Behaviors: Children can develop projected jaws as they age from overusing pacifiers and bottles or sucking their thumbs. 
  • Injury: Making a complete recovery from severe trauma is often difficult. Many patients have some form of misalignment after an injury. 
  • TMJ disorder: A temporomandibular joint disorder can inhibit muscle and ligament function around the jaw joints, potentially altering the way the jaw rests on your face.
