I went to the dentist today because I have noticed that my bite is off. I wore a hard next brace for the first 2 weeks post op, and still wear it while in the car. I have suffered from TMJ since I am a child. Anyway, the dentist agreed that I now have a cross bite, and thinks that my jaw has changed position. I showed him the hard collar I have been wearing and he thinks it may have shifted because of that. Has anyone else had any problem with their bite after surgery, or their jaw changing position?
I was told to see an orthodontist, when I don't have to wear the collar any more.
