Dear Dr,

I have an asymmetrical jaw. I was told it was because I have been chewing largely on left side of my jaw for years , causing my left jaw muscles to be stronger and larger than my right side. As a result my Chin basically tilts to the right when I smile.

I’m trying to correct this problem by chewing exclusively on my right side for the past 5 months now, but I’m afraid that with time my left jaw will weaken cos it’s not being used.

Do you think it’s advisable to chew only my right side or should I make an effort to chew with both sides equally instead? Will chewing equally make the progress of fixing my jaw asymmetry problem slower because it will also work my left jaw muscles at the same time? Please help..
