super teeth

April 7, 2008

good news and bad news during today’s visit to the orthodontist.

Bad news first. I most likely have to make one of the biggest decision in my life. In order to fix my ‘open bite’ problem, I would most likely have to commit to 3 years of pain. Bonus, a surgery might be is needed. From the discussion (or rather check-up), I would need to do a 6-9 months of braces, then a surgery which would cause me to have a swollen jaw for the next x months, then another 6-9 months of braces, then only I would get super teeth!

second option, is just to have braces, but the ‘open bite’ wouldnt be resolved…. So ………what’s the point right?

what should I do ?? I’m thinking to just go ahead with the first option because, hey, I think I’ve had enough of bad teeth, so if I want to have pretty teeth, here’s the sacrifice. (I’m really envious of people with straight teeth ok) But another side of me goes like.. wtf I’m not 15 years old leh.. 3 years sounds like a pretty loooong time. Plus, there’s A SURGICAL PROCEDURE. which by all means, I would most likely look different after 3 years. Well, if it’s for the better, why not right ?? tsk tsk

Man, I have 3 weeks to think whilst the doctors come up with (hopefully) another solution or option for me to choose…

On the better side, hey, my dentist is the best there (as per my friend) and there’s ALSO another attending dentist who’s kinda cute. HA HA and he speaks English !! My BM sucks okay. during my first visit I was thinking so hard on how to talk in BM that it’s kinda embarrassing.

It’s been 1 month 1 week since my first visit to the orthodontist (where I’m suppose to get my braces fixed after 5 years of waiting)

During the first visit, Dr. R checked my teeth, the formation and took moulds with some green/blueish stuff that looked like clay, and another one was to see how big the gap was between my upper and lower row of teeth. That was using some red pinkish stuff that looked like chewy wax. Ha ha.

Before the 2nd visit, I’m suppose to do scaling (remove plaque / stains from teeth) and get some x-rays.

And with that, I’ve decided to post up the silly x-ray pic of my teeth. It’s kinda like a 180 degree view from left to right..

OKay, i DO have 32 teeth and my wisdom teeth are all out although not at the perfect position.. But the gap.. man… the DAMN GAP …… (that squarish whitish thingy is the thing I was suppose to bite at while the x-ray machine moves around my head. It’s not candy)
