Dentistry/Bite/Body Imbalance


My current bite March 2016
My current bite March  

Also current March 2016
Also current March 201  
I had 1st premolars removed at ten years & no braces, so resulting imbalance - jaw problems have been ruled out. When my teeth are balanced to my body, (slightly higher on my left and 2nd premolars lengthened to accommodate for missing teeth, I am strong & comfortable. Without this accommodation I am crippled in pain throughout my body. I've been to numerous prosthodontists & maxillofacial  but they refuse to acknowledge a link between bite and body pain. In my life I've had periods where I've been strong and pain-free with temp filling build-ups and splints, but I need a prosthodontist who understands the bite/body relationship and will work with me on my particular problem to do crowns that will be right for me. Currently I'm living in the worst pain ever with a nightmare of crowns that are not functional. My teeth are under too much pressure to withstand over time.
