Hello there. Well in order to fully answer your question i need to know your complete details cause your questions are different and not full of information. First of all which country you belong to because you have asked me for a specialist but i need to know your place of residence. Secondly, you have mentioned teeth alignment, which suggests orthodontic correction with the help of Braces, which is diferent from TMJ disorders somehow, which you have mentioned. Functional occlusion needs to be checked to check the intercuspation of your teeth into one another or weather there is any discrepancy in your bite which can cause discomforts sometimes.

I need to know your present age, sex and also if possible,need to see your X-rays(O.P.G + Lateral Cephalogram) which will interpret your teeth & dental bone skelatal condition. Before coming to a final conclusion, one needs to follow a particular set of protocols. Please send me the required basic information a.s.a.p. I hope you would have understood what i need to know.Thank you for your trust & good luck !!

I was suffering from blood in my stool from long time until i consulted a doc and he said that i have fissure. I got it cured through ointments and having drinking fibre.

I have increased my water intake and also have started eating fibre fruits to a great extent but nothing is helping me. Howsoever hard I try, I am not able to evacuate completely. I go to washroom at least 5 times a day but still i feel full all the time. Sometimes I get black stool and sometimes its normal. My stool is not hard at all. I feel uneasy all the time. I stay in tension all the time due to this. Please suggest me a cure to this.

  Doctor's Answer

Hi, Since you have had a fissure, chances of recurrence are high. Constipation is just one of the causes of fissure.
