Bite constantly shifting



Junior member
Jun 10, 2018
Hi all,

Ever since I had half my teeth pulled and started wearing partial dentures 6 years ago I noticed by bite is constantly shifting and it's become increasingly painful.

I wear my partial dentures when I'm in public. When I'm alone I remove them. After I eat basically anything my jaw is sore and my remaining teeth hurt.

The pain and discomfort is usually the worst in the morning after I sleep. It feels like all my teeth have shifted overnight.

Wondering if anyone has any experience with this issue and how they cope?

My dentists hasven't been much help so far when I see them. Other than adjusting my partials.
