Bottom Teeth Hitting Top Teeth?

If I developed the recent problem of my bottom front teeth scraping against the backs of top front teeth, and sometimes the bottoms directly hitting against the bottom surfaces of the top, what can be done? I never had this problem before I had an "occlusion adjustment" after fillings, causing my bite not to touch on one side and I started grinding, and my back teeth became uneven, worn, and sunken, pushing the bottom front teeth forward. What can be done? Help!

Not an easy answer I suggest mount study models in CR and CO bite  and a computer analysis of your bite with neuromuscular evaluation with K7 and or Myomonitor, make sure you work with someone who has experience or your problems may get compounded. Good Luck
