    Greetings,

    For the past few months my lower jaw has been completely slanted to the side when I close my jaw. I have no over/underbite but when closing my mouth my two big central teeth on the upper jaw join the 2 left incisors. Basically my whole jaw is to one side.

    Now, I don't know much about teeth but surely this has to do with the joint at the base of the ear. My dentist has told me that I need braces but instinct is telling me that it might make it worse...

    I'm worried
