Latest and Greatest Orthodontic News

I went to the Orthodontist this evening to get fitted with a night guard to adjust my jaw while I’m sleeping. It was one of the least pleasant procedures yet. You know the stuff they use for acrylic nails? Yeah, that stuff in my mouth until it burns. My eyes were tearing, my mouth was watering and burning; it was awful. Once it was fit properly, it just clicks into the top of my mouth and hopefully doesn’t interrupt my sleep too much. The orthodontist said it might keep me from snoring, so at least one of us will be sleeping better. I just don’t understand why orthodontics seems to be stuck in the dark ages and we’re left to deal with these torture devices.
