Hi there bloggers!
Yesterday I got my lower 5 removed! my ortho said I would get better results after surgery, he is going to push my lower teeth as far as he can and my top ones as forward as he can therefore giving me a MASSIVE overbite. He said the bigger the overbite the more they can move my lower jaw forward and thats my main concern. I have to tell you a little secret: I HATE NEEDLES!!!! Ive been referred to the hospital in the past because I couldnt stand still in the dentist chair, this time i though: GROW UP HARA! I went in all by myself :) It helps to have such lovely staff in the clinic, they all know my name already and the nurse was the same one that my ortho has, she is soooooo lovely! she held my hand and told me i was doing great, even tho i was crying and shaking..... The dentist was also amazing, he kept telling me everything he was doing step by step in a very soothing voice. I love everyone at that clinic! Ive never said anything remotely as nice about any dentist Ive seen...
So now there is a huge hole in my mouth, yuck! I doesnt really hurt, i havent taken any painkillers yesterday or today. I'll post a picture on request, its gross.
I have a couple of questions for you regarding numbness:
1) Does it feel like when you come out of the dentist but for months??? I really hate that feeling and i couldn't move my bottom lip
2) My OS hasnt told me about how many mm he is planning to move the jaw forward, im guessing it'll be a big move. Does the numbness get worse the more they move it?
Thanks for reading and have a lovely weekend everyone! Im going to Paris today for my friends birthday! :)
