Does having TMJ have any effect on your facial appearance?

Does having TMJ have any effect on your facial appearance?

No: Having TMJ should not affect your face, unless you are in a lot of pain and you have a pained expression on your face. Tmj has to do with the muscles that move your jaw spasming or cramping causing pain. This should not affect how your muscles look, as the spasm is deep in the muscle. So, I would say you shouldn't notice any facial changes due to tmj.

My son was born with asymmetric crying facies (some doctors called it cullp) – he is 3 years old now and it is still visible. Can anything be done?

Probably not: There are various expressions of this condition: simple missing muscle in that part of face to a complex abnormality of chromosome 22 with far reaching problems, including heart, blood, eye and brain defects. If all your child has is an asymmetric cry, count yourself blessed. Be sure there has been a thorough workup looking for above.

Will a missing molar tooth affect the facial appearance (on the exterior), skin flexibility, jaw volum loss, . as time goes by? I can't afford an implant

Will a missing molar tooth affect the facial appearance (on the exterior), skin flexibility, jaw volum loss, . as time goes by? I can't afford an implant

Missing tooth: Molars are key teeth in your mouth. They serve to bring food and that's where most of the chewing occurs. Losing a tooth in one jaw causes the tooth in the opposing jaw to over erupt and the neighboring teeth to drift. A replacement in the form of a "bridge" or an implant crown may be indicated to prevent any undesirable consequences. Consult with your dentist to determine the right treatment.

Best is to work together with a gastroenterologist to arrive at the correct answer for you. Everyone is different and there is not one straight approach. You may start with as simple as an elimination diet and record which foods may aggravate you. Best wishes!
