I'm fortunate that my lips are still quite full,...... but I have noticed that my mouth seems to be getting smaller and I can't open it as wide.....Today I felt like the dentist was going rip my mouth apart; and he was repeatedly asking me to... OPEN MY MOUTH WIDER !!!!!!!..When he finally took his gloved hand out my mouth I managed to tell him I had Scleroderma...... It is well written in my dental records...... so he doesn't really have an excuse that he didn't know !!!......I told him that I am very concerned about my receding gums; a small blocked salivary gland and a tight band of over granulated skin on the inside of my cheek...all my dentist could offer was a blank expression and that he would see me again in 6 months....although in his favour;.. he did say that he will keep his eye on things.....Does anyone else have similar experiences ??....or any advice for a dry mouth and skin tightening...
