TMJ patient, no vertical dimension, miserable
Please help me. I got invisalign braces to correct an edge to edge bite and my dentist made everything worse. Not only was the edge to edge bite not corrected, he left me with an open bite on both sides and worst of all, my bottom teeth feel too tall in my mouth. I don't have any freeway space, or vertical dimension. I can't even kiss anymore. My top and bottom teeth feel too long, and when I try to kiss, my tongue can't fit through.
My question is, how can I regain vertical dimension? I'm in tradtional braces now and the edge to edge bite is fixed. How do we open up my bite again? My ortho wants to intrude my teeth by using TADs. Does that sound like it would work? Please help me.
