I’m a 22 year old female in need of help. Last week i yawned and my jaw snapped quite loudly. from then on it gave a few pops but i never had trouble opening my mouth wide. then a couple days later it grew worse and i could hardly open my mouth. ive been seeing a chiropractor and he says i dislocated it and it popped itself back in. i now have a crossbite i guess you would call it. my bottom jaw feels completely off. my chiropractor said that the muscles are probably just tense and my teeth should go back to normal. my intuition is telling me this isn’t so and things are a lot worse than he says. what should i do? how did i all of a sudden develop this crossbite?i’m scared. i dont have insurance so i haven’t gone to the dentist yet. my family won’t listen when i say this is serious. please help!!! i can’t eat or sleep or speak.

I am sorry to hear of your problem

If you love in this country you probably do not need insurance to see a dentist

Find one and perhaps he will refer you to a hospital for an opinion from a maxillofacial surgeon

You may want to look at my website and look at the presentation from number 9 onwards

You will get better in time

Best wishes
