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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I have a soft corn on my third toe and I have been using Dr. Scholls corn removers to rid the appearance, but it keeps re-appearing after treatment. ?

I have a soft corn on my third toe and 
I have been using Dr. Scholls corn removers to rid the appearance, but it keeps re-appearing after treatment. ?

Soft corn: These are tough, because the area between the toes is usually very moist--it is difficult to get anything to stick there. The condition is most often caused by a prominent bone in one or both of the toes that rub against each other. Try padded sleeves or tube foam. Ultimately, an X ray and surgery (shaving down the prominent bone, etc.) may be necessary to get rid of the problem. ...Read more

Size and location: The size and location of the cyst will usually dictate the answer. Most mucous cysts are rather small and incision usually leaves little to no scars. If removed with a diode laser, no sutures are usually needed. If a scalpel is used, very thin sutures may be used. This is a very common procedure and discuss the details with your dentist. ...Read more

Can a gential wart texturally change from a raised bumpy wart to Verrucae wart in appearance after TCA acid treatment?

Can a gential wart texturally change from a raised bumpy wart to Verrucae wart in appearance after TCA acid treatment?

Wart topical therapy: Sure - you're basically trying to destroy the thing with a chemical compound, so I would expect some morphological changes. What exactly that's going to look like on it's way to final destruction depends on the starting size, how much treatment you give it etc. The thing about warts is they 'hide' from the immune system, so they can be somewhat persistent. Sounds like you're making progress tho. ...Read more
