Lost Singing Voice 2 Years Ago

After having dental work done my singing voice has fallen away. Is it really dentally-related or could it be something else? I've been to 2 specialists who looked in the throat with cameras and said everything is great. They thought perhaps acid reflux for some pinkness, but I don't have a.r. It feels like 'air' escapes when I'm trying to sing and also I can no longer hold a note~ the voice just does what it wants, which feels like muscle laziness and I have no control over it. Very sad ex-singer/musician. Thank you for your time and expertise.

It would be unlikely to be related to your dental work, but it certainly sounds as though you've not been properly diagnosed yet. I would suggest that see a laryngologist, an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician who specializes in the treatment of voice disorders. See the American Academy of Otolaryngology website at
http://www.entnet.org/ to search for a specialist.
Good luck!
