I think I have trigger points in my masseter muscle, but I'm not sure. As I've written before, I have been having pain in my lower right molars. The x-rays show no indication of dental problems, and my teeth are *not* temperature-sensitive to either cold or hot. However, the teeth (one in particular) is *very* sensitive to the touch, which makes it hard, if not impossible, for me to chew on that side. I have noticed a few times that when my teeth are touching on the right side, they are *not* touching on the left. Furthermore, it's hard for me to position my mouth so that the molars on the left touch. (I'm able to chew on that side, however.) I was wondering whether trigger points in the masseter muscle (or maybe some other muscle affecting the jaw) might be pulling my jaw/teeth out of alignment. I also wonder whether that misalignment might be responsible for or perpetuating my teeth pain. I have a call in to my dentist, but the people on this list often have had experience that dentists and doctors (even the best of them) don't know about. I would appreciate any information you can share. Thank you. --Laura R.M.
