zip n squeeze!!!

I just ordered some things from z n squeeze. I ordered a 10 pack kit and the jaw wrap. I heard from a few people that this company takes long to deliver their items. So I thought to myself I better order this stuff now. I am also going to buy a big thing of whey powder, and a few cans of insure. And just keep buying a few things here and their until my surgery. And I'm still hoping that my surgery is the end of August....but if it is that soon I'll be cutting it close on supplies. But I heard you don't have much of an appetite a few days after surgery.

My first cavity!!!!!

I think that I have a cavity! Every time I drink something cold, or use cold water on my tooth brush or blow in air my canine on my right side gets a "zing!" It started out as a sensitive feeling. but now it has grown into pain! I hope to God that I don't have a cavity. I can't take the needle in my mouth...just thinking about it is getting me all panicky....(no not a real word..oh wait.....yes it is!)

But other then my cavity problem, My teeth are doing well. My gaps are closing more and more every week! It's getting harder and harder to floss with my new tight contacts. I will definitely post some new pictures tonight, or tomorrow. I have class tonight so we will see if I have the time to do it. Between me and my husband in school, two kids under the age of 3, and cooking dinner....I might be too tired. And not to mention we both work 40+ hours a week! YIKES! Busy schedule . But, we will make it....even if its only on two hours of sleep. I feel so bad for my husband. He will be in school wand working while I am having my jaw surgery.....what a man I have to take all this on, and by himself!

I have the greatest husband in the world!

PROGRESS!

As some of you know I work in a dental clinic. So I decided to take impressions on myself. The came out really good actually. There was one point where i could not get the suction off my top arch and I started feeling claustrophobic. But I stayed calm and got the mold out.
ANYWHO! I took the molds because I wanted to see how my progress is. Well my bottom arch is almost completely closed! I only have a .5 mm gap on the left side, and a 1mm gap on the right! So I think that I will be ready for surgery in July not August!
But the beset surprise came when I put my molds together! I put them together without my underbite and oh my word they look wonderful! I am going to have such a nice smile! :)
On my next ortho appt I am going to ask the orthodontist if I should drop my fall classes. If I am going to be ready for surgery I don't want to take classes and not be able to and fail out or anything. But I'm pretty sure fall classes don't start till September....so maybe I'll be good to go. Who knows...
But I just wanted to share my progress with you all!

GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!

My good news all started with the cleaning i had a day before my othro appointment. The hygienist said that she had nothing in my mouth to scrape! She said I am doing so good with my oral hygiene! YAY!
Then the next day at my appointment, the first thing the doc said was that I had such good oral hygiene! And that is why my teeth are moving so quickly! So I got a new set of power chains dark blue. I feel like that dark blue makes me teeth look whiter. So after he put on the powerchains and trimmed some of the extra wire. I knew he knew what question was coming....the same question I always ask at the end of my appointment. But he got me before I got him. He said that in August he is going to take my molds/casts and take a ceph x ray! :)
I have my next appointment with him in June...mid June. And I am going to ask him if he is sure I'll be ready.
I'm not trying to say he does not know what he is talking about....but I just want to know if I should take classes in the fall semester or not.
So after my appointment I talk to my OS and he said two weeks after I give him the molds....he will put me into surgery. It takes him two weeks to get a room and staff at the hospital. So It looks like its going to be August!
And I don't think that I will be getting my mid line fixed by the ortho.
One more thing.....I have had my braces on for 6 months!!!!!!! Time really does fly! :)
