Cleaning

I just had my cleaning done a few hours ago, and my hygienist is so proud of the way I keep my teeth! She says' she hates when she see's people come in with the white around their brackets from not cleaning properly. She says that she wants to get in "there" one more time before i am all wired up. She also said that she can get water piks at a discount price since she is a hygienist! So she is going to order me one! How nice! She is very into my surgery. She has a three year old daughter she has a class three bite. And just in case she has to go through this she wants to know what my experience is. But with technology these days they probably have things that they can do as a child to fix things and she may not even need surgery.

Some More good news that open gap between my first and second molars are completely closed! So I am going to give it about a week to settle in it's new place and call my ortho and see if he can get me in at least a week early. I hope that somebody cancel es! I still have 29 more days to wait for my next appt.

I've got an issue...and I need your help!

When I got home from work today my jaw started aching so bad. I took two 800mg's of Motrin....but it did not work. The pain has gone from right jaw socket to left jaw socket and down to my glands under my chin. I was wondering if this is normal.
I took more Motrin and now I am going to take some flexeril to see if that helps. The pain seems to be radiating from my wisdom teeth....weird.....if it is not better by the morning I think I will see my dentist or orthodontist....

Now I can get excited!!!!

SOoOoOo.........
I had my ortho appointment this morning. My doc showed me the pano that he took last month and my roots are perfect! He was scared for my lower teeth because i have short roos. numbers 20-24. But they are all good!
Then he took a look at my bite and what he said was so exciting! "GREAT! Steve (my oral surgeon) is going to love this! I can't wait till next month when we take the models to see how your new bite is going to look."
All through out my appointment he was telling me how he can't wait for my next appointment....which in turn is getting me excited. We are also going to be taking a ceph.
So at this appointment I got the same tan/heavy rubber bands (We never had to go to super heavy bands) He put new bands around my top (we have not messed with my upper arch for months) and a new power chain on the bottom.
I have not had to take Aspirin for the last 4 of my adjustments....I wish I would have this time. He is pulling my bottom right molars....holy shit!!!!!!!! They hurt like hell. I couldn't even eat my banana bread! The bread didn't even have nuts in them!
HOLY SHIT!!!!! (sorry I only cuss when I'm excited or scared) my molars are closed!!!!!! He put the power chains all the way to my molars this time and put a wire tie back their and my molar is closed!!!!! OH MY!!!!!!!
Yup! So if I am ready for surgery in July....which my Ortho assures me I will, I will have my surgery in August.
I spoke to my friend who works with my oral surgeon and she told me that it only takes me OS two weeks to get a surgery room over at the hospital. And she said that once I get my molds to call her and i'll get an appoint within the week! WORK YOUR MAGIC GIRL!

OH! I am going to take some pics of my teeth from a few days ago to today and i hope that you guys can see the difference!

NIGHTMARE!!!!!!!

HOLY COW! I had the worse nightmare ever! I had a dream that I was having my jaw surgery. So they put the IV in me and put me to sleep. They wait a few moments....then the doc begins to drill holes all over the inside of my jaw.
"AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!""""""""" I try to scream. But to no avail. I was not asleep I was awake! But my eyes where still closed. No matter how hard I screamed I just could not get the scream to come out my mouth.
So the surgery is over with and I try to text my husband. But he is no where to be found. I wanted to tell him about my horrible experience....then I start crying because my husband can't be found, nor my mother.....I was all alone. And in so much pain.
When I woke up I actually had to sit for a second and think if it all really WAS a dream.
Scary shit huh!?!
This was my second dream about me having jaw surgery and both have been nightmares....Just thinking about my dreams are making me nervous.
I have my ortho appt in two days!

delivery!

I got my zip n squeeze package yesterday! The came really quick. I was not expecting it. But as I was ready the directions, they are only good for 2-3 days.....And I have 5 food bags, and 5 water bags....that's not enough for me. Seeing that I am going to be wired for 6-8 weeks. So next payday I am going to have to order more. My next ortho appointment is in 10 days!!!!!! Then my next ortho appointment in July my doc said he will more then likely give me the "okay" for surgery. So July we should be doing molds and all that jazz!
Since my Oral surgeon's schedule gets pretty full in the summer. What with kids being out of school and everything. Once I get my august appointment I am going to make my OS appointment for two weeks after. I don't know if the make the molds their or send them out....if they are just regular molds they should be done that day. YAY!!!!!!
