Initially, there was no way I was going to wear metal railroad tracks on my over-bitten, crooked teeth for the second time. Wearing those dreadful things was hell during my freshman and sophomore year of high school. I seriously regret not wearing my retainer after they removed them back in high school. I'm sure my mother despises me for it, too. Wasting her valuable funds when they could have been put into better use, such as, giving one of the other sisters a chance to experience life with perfectly aligned teeth. Sorry sisters. No one mentioned to me that my teeth would shift if I did not wear my retainer every night. For those who currently wear braces. Wear your freakin retainers, damnit!!!! Shifting teeth is no joke. I'm paying for it more than 15 years later. Because once again, I'm practically starting from scratch (minus the crooked gap and slanted left front tooth). The invisalign fitting and molding process was finally complete this past Saturday when I visited my orthodontist. Two months and four wisdom teeth removals later, it's hard to believe that they've finally arrived! My invisalign trays to be exact. I received my first tray out of eleven. If all goes well, I should be done with these suckers by Week 22! Crossing my fingers! Instructions: Wear 23 hours a day. Only remove when you are brushing your teeth or eating. I seriously don't remember him mentioning the 23 hour part to me during the past 2 months. Selective hearing must have kicked in. Anyway, I have two dilemmas: 1.) My orthodontist, Dr. Chan failed to mention was that I would be carrying what you call a lisp for freakin six months! Unbelievable. They seriously should include this important factor in the fine print. Better yet, during the initial consultation! And 2.) No more snacking. It's such a hassle having to remove these trays you might as well call transparent dentures every time I want to pop something satiating into my mouth. I've already donated my bag of chocolate Hershey's kisses to Jay-Jay at work. It was so hard! Sometimes, you just have to let go of things you love most-snacking on sugar frequently. Talk about a chocolate addict's sacrifice! It's too bad I can't turn back. I've paid for half of the cost already. Seriously, people - be careful what you wish for. Maybe metal railroad tracks would've been a better option, yeah? Either way, I feel like a geek. Let's hope these six months go by extremely fast. That and I hope I'm not required to do any public speaking any time soon.
