Hi Jay. I'm Dr. Phil
nice to meet you
I think there are two causes
1)you must have some genetic susceptibility to it. Like weak jaw bones or something like that
So everyone that smokes doesn't get this but in you it causes this severe problem
MS doesn't cause any jaw/bone problems
not even by causing trigeminal neuralgia
that also doesn't affect bone structure
i have a genetic susceptibilty that just means my jaw bone is degrading rapidly, and the rest of my skeleton can take all the impacts of the sports and work i do?
for some reason, certain folks have this
I can't explain it
there seems to be some people that are much more susceptible to jaw problems
thank you for your time. do you think i should go to hospital for a check up? or just thank my dentist for being a good one!?
It would be reasonable to see an oral surgeon (medical doctor not dentist) for a second opinion just to be sure
something this severe should get a second set of eyes on it Jay
thanks for your help doc.
you're welcome Jay
Did I do excellent work for you?
