Unlike my last visit to the orthodontist, my visit yesterday actually resulted in fewer things in my mouth instead of more1. Specifically, I now only need to wear an elastic on the left side of my mouth, not the right.
Also, she did an x-ray of my teeth, just to see how my root canalled teeth were holding up. She said that there was a bit of root shortening, but that’s to be expected when you’ve had dead teeth in your face for 25 years and that they actually looked pretty good, considering.
So, yeah. Go me!
- So, I realize that my title is grammatically incorrect, as I should be saying “fewer” rather than “less.” But “One Fewer Things In My Mouth” sounded awkward and weird, so I’m going with the incorrect title! [↩]
