Ortho Update

I went to the orthodontist today to get molds taken and xrays. Not the most enjoyable experience in the world. The xrays were fairly painless, but I’m still sore from the molds. The way they do them is to put this rubbery mold plastic in a tray in the shape of a top jaw and a bottom. The first problem was that I have these bone growths in the bottom of my mouth under my tongue that are pretty tender and always in the way for xray slides and anything that pushes on them. We got a big enough tray to avoid hitting them, but since I already have braces, the molding material molds and hardens around every bracket and the wires. It took 2 girls to get the tray back out and it was horrible. It felt like my teeth were going to come out with the mold. The top didn’t come out much easier, but we got them done and I came back home to wait until next week when I can get my braces off.
