Back in May, I noted on these here pages that it was getting to be high time I addressed the teeth issue especially because OUCH and I want to feel more confident out in public and with my teeth currently, I am so not that.
Cut to last week, when one of my teeth asked me (in a very loud voice, thankyouverymuch) to pay attention to it by creating a wall of pain. Alrighty, then. Duty made me promise to call the dentist and so I rang up the one I was looking at back in May and made an appointment.
They were SUPER. Seriously. They took pics and scans and xrays and all manner of things and then we sat down to talk.
I don’t need to have all my teeth pulled!! YEY!
Life, she is good. Braces will address a good part of the issue because my gums are in pretty decent shape, all considered.
So, I’m getting two pulled, having the bone built up and going to the orthodontist for next steps. There’s more to do and braces will be on for a good two years (possibly more, possibly less if I can get my magic working) but praise Jesus, I don’t have to be in dentures.
Remind me of this when I’m whining about how my teeth hurt in the coming months/years, please?
