I'm a medical dr from india. had severe crowding .My orthodontist pulled out four healthy premolars , straightened them up and closed the remaining spaces by retracting the anterior teeth . As the spaces closed , i had a tough time keeping my tongue in my mouth . I just feel like I've not enough space for my tongue to fit in . I can't speak properly, i can't sing properly. By trying so hard to fit my tongue in by making jaw movements continuously , i got a severe TMJ pain . all this has created a mess in my mind , I'm anxious ,sad most of the times because of this. Most of the orthodontists are unable to understand my problem and call me stressed , crazy , etc. I just pray everyday that i find someone who can help me .. still in the hope of the same. I wish it never happens to anybody.
