All,

Recently, I have been having teeth pain and looks like my jaws might be shrinking, but teeth remain same size. These make teeth rub against each other more and causing pain.

Has any one felt like this?
Kamlesh
Kind regards,

Kamlesh

Dear Kamlesh,

I am so sorry to hear about your pain. I personaly haven't felt my jaw shrink but I do feel pain in my jaw and the muscles along my jaw line. I know there has to be someone hear on the forum that can answer your questions. I am sorry that I couldn't be more helpful since you are in need of some answers. Hang in there.

HUGGS,

Hi,

It is possible that you are having reabsorbtion of the bones in your jaws OR the skin along your jawline may be tigthening causing you to feel as if your mouthi is too small for your teeth. Here is a link that discusses both of those possibilities and other dental involvement.

Warm wishes,
Heidi
