Alright braced comrades....I've lived through another god awful adjustment.
I sure hope these get better as time goes on. Anyway, here's my new green ligs....
To say it hurt...was an understatement. I went in, the tech took of my purple ligs...which for the most part was painless. I have 2 teeth teeth that were a bit sore when she was taking them off. I have 2 teeth, one on each side of my front 2, that the brackets are so close to my front 2 it's almost impossible to get those ligs on...or off. So when she would try to get them off she would lift and try to get them off...and then miss and she would jerk and ram her tool against my gums......MFDIH!!!!!
Ya...not a happy camper was I. She kept apologizing, but....my poor gums.
Anyway, so then the doc came over and being the talkative person he is....
said.."looking good, changer her out...let me know when your done so I can check it"....and this..is where the fun began. NOT.
So, she's like..."I know this is probably going to hurt, but I'll do my best"...OK nurse hatchet. So she does all my side teeth both top and bottom...no problem. No pain...Nada. Then she starts on my front top 4. This...is where....I saw white. So she does my very front 2...that was ok. A little tender but I could handle that. She then goes to my right side...barley gets that one. Jerks her tool into my gums about 4 times, between the pain of that and the pain of my tooth feeling like it was literally being pulled out without any pain meds....I had sweat just pouring off of me. Then, she goes to the left one and I swear to god...to GOD...I started shaking. After the 3rd try I finally told her she had to stop. I was shaking, sweating, the pain was un-frickin-believable.
I told her, if were gonna do this again, we've gotta get it right on the next try or I'm gonna hit someone. This hurts, and it hurts bad. So she goes and gets the dentist....(thank you...god in heaven) So, he comes in and is like..."ya, I knew those ones were going to be sore. Their the one's that have the farthest to move up there"...Gee, thanks for pre-warning me...DA!!!! So he sits down, tells the tech to "hold" the back of that tooth, (put pressure on it) and says "honey, it feels that way cause it's literally moving the bone" takes the lig and says...here we go...he loops the top and goes to loop the bottom and all you hear is...crack
....snap..it goes on. At the same time...the tech says's "did you hear that???!!!" and the dentist says.."that's a first". Ya...that crack was my tooth moving down out of the bone as he hooked the bottom part. Oh ya, did I mention I had tears at this point strolling down my check. AND...all my brackets are double ligged....so.. we had to do it....AGAIN.
Not a good day yesterday. Not at all. The bottoms ones (middle 4) were sore also, only one as bad as that top one....but at least they got done on the first try. (Thanks to the fact the dentist himself did it) The ortho said as I was leaving, "you might want to take some pain meds ASAP and take it easy"....YA THINK!!!!.
Surprisingly though, no pain eating last night, which really surprised me. This morning...a little tender, but still not anywhere as bad as I thought it was going to be. Mother in heaven I hope those adjustments get a little less painful. That was like having a tooth extracted minus the novocaine.
He said everything was going well and he'd see me at the end of the month....HUH?? WHAT??? So soon??? I need time. I need...a...to gurt up my loins. Pain...again...so soon. I'm scared. I want my mommy.
I'll post befores and afters later. I'm still in shock that I'll have to go through this....twice...in a month.
