I have teeth issues, and not in the cavity-got-to-have-a-filling kind of way. I have to get braces for the THIRD time. You see, I had braces when I was a teenager, and while they straightened my teeth, they didn’t help with my jaw alignment.
Fast forward 10 years and my dentist referred me to an orthodontist who said I could have Invisalign and braces on my bottom teeth. That guy took my braces off too soon, leaving at least one tooth out of place, and no work on my jaw.
Move forward another three years, and my second orthodontist sells his practice, selling my case with it. I now have a new orthodontist and he and my dentist are upset that my jaw is still messed up. I’ve been fighting these guys (the ortho and dentist) for months.
I lost my braces battle this morning.
I’m getting braces on Monday.
Now instead of our funding our house dreams, money I make from ceramics will be going towards my teeth. See the etsy link on the right (towards the bottom of the right column) for my craftiness that’s up for sale. More items to come soon.
In the meantime, I’m bummed.
