does the centre of you top front teeth line up with the centre of your bottom front teeth.
I think i have a crooked jaw but i have only noticed his has been the case since having my wisdom teeh extracted last year. is this possible or am i imagining it?
I also suffer from TMJ syndrome so get lots of pain in my jaw (by my ear) and popping, grinding and cracking.

Yeah, but I had braces. I don’t know if they did before but I think so?

I voted no but I just checked and they do! Sorry about that. I don’t have perfect teeth so I just assumed at first.

@ChocolateLime: It’s actually more likely that there are trigger points in the muscles in your jaw (the pterygoids are a huge contributor to TMJ disorder). When I was in school we had some clients who thought they had a crooked jaw, turns out those trigger points just needed released and everything straightened out perfectly.

Mine don’t line up. I have TMJ and that seems to throw everything out of whack. Though, now that you mention it, if my back teeth line up, the line between the front ones don’t. I still have my wisdom teeth and one of the top ones either never formed, or never came through. That might be why.

Yes, mine do. I had to check with my phone. Ha ha

Mine don’t. I had braces but my teeth are not aligned since I don’t wear a retainer. My jaw clicks sometimes when I chew.

Yes they do. I never had braces, just lucky!

Yes, because I had braces and was a model braces wearer, which caused much shame as a middle schooler. I wore my rubberbands and headgear and everything religiously, including the retainer until the end of my freshman year of college. So I may have been made fun of for a year and a half in middle school, but my friends who cheated on their rubber bands and head gear had theirs for up to 4 years.

When your wisdom teeth are removed you teeth can shift some. It just means your midlines don’t match up. Usually it’s fixed with braces, but if your smile and your bite are good then let it go. Sometimes braces or shifting of the teeth can make your TMJ worse even though some dentists will try to treat it with these methods, it sometimes does more harm than good.

Its not too noticiable, its my bottom teeth that are shifted to the right by 1 tooth width. When i smile my mouth looks even-maybe every so ever so slightly to the right on the botom, but i think only i would notice that. I never noticed my teeth were crooked before. I have never needed braces and always had a perfect bite.
I dont think its so much the teeth have shifted as they are still as straight as they ever were i think its more my jaw is out of alignment.
I might mention it at my next dentist appointment ( i havent been in over a year oops) and see what they say.

No. They did, but one of bottom teeth was set back in my mouth (they were wonky). In order to line them up / make them straight they moved a bit. I used the Inman Aligner – really good if you have a cosmetic, minor, front-tooth problem. Took 2-3 months to make my teeth totally straight. They are maybe 1/2 a tooth out.
An x-ray showed my wisdom teeth we coming through. That was about 18months ago and they haven’t as of yet.
