I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem I have. I have always been told I have a really SMALL mouth. This makes dental work VERY uncomfortable and difficult for the dentist AND myself! Of course, he had to put those devices in my mouth to keep it open, and they are SO large for my mouth, making my jaw extremely uncomfortable. I can't tell you how much pain my jaw is still in from work I had dome on Tuesday (Today is Thursday). It is really painful to open my mouth today, and I still have a lot of pain in both sides of my jaw. I DO have arthritis too, so I am sure that isnt' helping matters. I jUSt wondered if anyone else has this problem, and if so, what do you do about it?
