I haven't written, for quite a while, about my journey back into braces. It's been quite a journey and right now it's 50/50 whether I'd do it again. I just had an orthodontist appointment and my ortho tech asked me whether I'd do it again. I had to answer her with an honest "I don't know..."
|I may have summer teeth but a ice cold Corona Light fits in very well with the summer theme!|
I also have to remember why I started this whole dagburned process...so I don't have to deal with the pain from TMJ disorder b.s. My reliance on motrin is nil. I don't grind my teeth anymore. So hopefully, when I'm 60 I won't have tiny, little, ugly nubs for teeth from grinding them away. Guess I'm going for the geeky looking 40 year old as opposed to the toothless 60 year old. That way I can show my kids the importance of taking care of themselves.
It's a toss up...do I wanna look geeky and hideous now or do I wanna have nubs for teeth when I'm 60? Guess the geeky-looking, gap-toothed 40-something year old will have a leg up on a potentially toothless 60 year old! Zach says I look completely goofy will these gaps all over the place. Gee, thanks for the support, Zach!! Hopefully, I'll look back on this little blip of geek-dom and be very thankful I will have many more years of going for glam once these teeth are reconfigured into some sembelance of order.
Taking care of my self...for the love of my children.
