I went to the dentist yesterday. I haven’t had a cavity since I was 8, but of course, now that I have to pay for my own dental treatment, I have several. I was at the dentist 8 months ago. They didn’t find anything. WTF?
And of course, he said I need braces because my teeth aren’t perfect. Yeah, I’m going to put myself through hell for 2+ years so I can have perfect teeth. Do any of you notice anything wrong with my teeth? No? Well, maybe that’s because they’re fine!
I did my part. I went to my orthodontist for over 10 years! I only stopped going last year! I wore my retainer for nearly 7 years, and for three years after I had my wisdom teeth removed. My teeth are now as they were then. If braces didn’t fix the problem the first time, what could they do now? Did my orthodontist screw up? I don’t think so. I remember how my teeth were and how he said they should be. They’re better now than they were.
Reading online, the only people who need braces again are the ones that didn’t wear their retainers when they had their wisdom teeth out. Heck, I looked at before and after pictures of people with crossbites. My teeth were never as bad as the before, but look extraordinarily similar to the after. And from what I’ve read, you have to have bigger issues than mine to cause problems in the future.
I already look like a teenager, the last thing I need are braces. So the money hungry, orthodontal referring dentist can fill his cavities, but if says anything about the stupid braces again, I’m taking my tooth business elsewhere!
Oh and Bryan got hired permanently at his job, yay!
