I was never this attentive when younger as I thought I was doing enough already because I rarely had any dental issues in my life.
After I was diagnosed with Embouchure Dystonia I started to care a lot more about everything concerning my face, mouth, upper body, and health in general just out of pure frustration....not that it would change anything regarding my dystonia.
I started going the extra mile. I figured it could only help me in the long-run with overall health, and prevent any other possible future issues.
After studying all the things that could damage your teeth, glands, mouth, and jaw....no wonder I am a bit paranoid. Haha! :-)
