Wide-Ranging Symptoms of Bite Problems
When Shelly (name changed to retain anonymity) came to us, she had a number of issues with her bite. She had TMJ symptoms such as jaw pain and headaches. Visually, her collapsed bite made her face look more squat and square, which made her look older and more overweight than she actually was. Visually, her face had sunken, bringing her nose closer to her chin.
What people couldn’t see was another major impact of her collapsed bite. Because of the size, position, and fit of her teeth, Shelly’s airway was very narrow. This made it harder for her to breathe. The result was a general sense of fatigue and low energy.
Shelly decided she wanted a change and came to us with these problems because she knew that Dr. Mike Firouzian is one of the few dentists in Columbus, OH, who deals with these types of issues.
