Week 3. I think it's time for another photo shoot.
Ever watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia? All I hear is Dee's "Goddammit, you guys!" referring to my teeth. MOVE already! I know, I know it's only three weeks in. One or two teeth might have shifted but I think I'm just seeing things. And it's really hard getting the same angle as my first set of photos so there's no way to tell yet.
The brackets and wires have embossed themselves in my lips and cheeks. It's like the styrofoam that fits around a new stereo when you unpack it from the box. Everything fits snuggly now, no wax needed.
The aches are gone.
Every second thought used to be about my teeth. Now it's every fifth or sixth thought.
Every fifth or sixth thought it about my teeth.
I went to The Royal Winter Fair this past weekend in Toronto. So many food stalls! And so much food I couldn't try. It really hit me then how not being able to tear into food limits my choices of things to eat. Plus there was a booth selling british candy and they had my favourite kind there! Fruit Tips! Not only that but they had the bestest flavour packaged all on it's own. But it's very chewy and gummy and there's no way I could eat it.
I had my first teeth dream. I dreamt I woke up one morning and had extra teeth growing under my tongue.
What I've learned:
I can eat sushi just fine. Phew! I can also eat pizza with a knife and fork.
What I'd like learn:
My TMD is on the left side of my jaw. My open bit is appearing on the left. My teeth are more crooked on the left. The start of my gum recession is on the left. Coincidence?
