So I know that everything is still a while away and I'm in a waiting process right now. Still about another month until I find anything out.
the whole thing has been driving me a little crazy though, knowing I'm going to be back in braces, and that I have to have jaw surgery. I'm also nervous about correcting my tongue thrusting habit as it is something I feel I have very little control over. If you have read my previous blogs you would know that the orthodontist thinks that what caused my jaw issues is this habit where I push on my front teeth when I shallow instead of on the roof of my mouth. Its weird I know, but its also just what I have ben doing my whole life.
I'm taking the whole process as a good reason to keep my teeth and gums super healthy, so I am trying to cut down on the sugar and floss like crazy. I've already been good for flossing my teeth, but I'm just going to try to be even better.
I did get the waterpik but I'm still going to use superfloss as my teeth are really close together and very hard to get in between. I bought the whitening attachments for the waterpik and I will give them a try when I am home in a few days. I always find its hardest to keep my teeth super white in between so i'm hoping this helps. I have been a huge fan of whitestrips and I can tell you this much, THEY WORK! Like literally, even my orthodontist pointed out that my teeth are very white, I haven't even used the strips in a while, but the results last! Honestly give them a try before you spend a fortune of professional whitening. I've used whitening trays in the past and the results were nowhere near what I get with whitestrips. Even the classic ones work great!
Well thats my little dental rant for the day, I will let everyone know if the whitening attachments for the waterpik work.
