So I was looking at photographs of myself from a few years ago. I used to chew gum daily (and was unfortunately also a night-time clencher). My face was so much more attractive! I always had a strong jawline. Unfortunately I have quite severe TMJD (yes I even had it back then when my face looked a whole lot better). I’ve been wearing a “repositioning splint” only at night, and my jaw muscles have definitely weakened/atrophied. While it’s great I’m not clenching as much, it’s definitely taken a toll on my looks. It also forces my mouth slightly open and it’s quite uncomfortable to keep my mouth properly closed. I’m positive it had changed my tongue posture as well. I knew my face looked different now but I couldn’t quite work out what it was (obviously I’m a bit older but seems a drastic change). Thanks so much reading your website has given me more awareness!
