A: Over time, chewing on one side of the mouth can lead to strain, sensitivity and sometimes TMD (Temporomandibular disorders.) This can result in jaw problems such as locking and pain in the jaw joints.
Take a look at your chewing habits and try to chew with both sides, if possible. If you are experiencing pain when chewing with one side of your mouth, you may have an infection, cavity, cracked tooth, or jaw issues.
Schedule an appointment with us if you are experiencing any pain.
