A little update on my wisdom teeth
The holes have started to close very nicely. My right side is hardly a hole anymore and the left side is still noticeable but I'm not really losing food in them anymore which is a relief! I also notice that the jaw bone on the top seems to be receding where I had the top wisdom teeth pulled. All in all I'm starting to think that maybe these changes in my jaw bone from having the teeth out are causing my bite to sit differently. It's not bad though, at least it doesn't look as bad and my chin is less stressed than what it was.
I have a lot of messages I need to respond to regarding jaw surgery but its been a busy few weeks. I have a stats test tomorrow and my last stats assignment due soon on hypotheses testing and estimation. Its also been really nice in Toronto and we've been spending a lot of days driving out to the beach and enjoying the short lived summer we get here.
Its improving, I have taken some tips from some great videos I've watched on Meghans blog and I notice that my tongue is slowly getting stronger and resting more naturally where it should. I also am much more aware of when I start thrusting and I stop myself. I usually notice the pressure I put on my teeth which I used to ignore.
Life with braces
I've gotten a lot of comments on my videos from people who are going to get braces asking what its like having braces in your 20's. At first I didn't really mind them, then I didn't really notice them. Now though, they are that horrible thing you don't notice is there until you want to bite into a sandwich, or you catch yourself in some reflective object. They aren't horrible, but I don't feel like myself. Besides having a stupid open bite and a class III malocclusion, I've always had people comment on how much they like my smile, it was like that thing I had going for me I guess. I still smile just as much, except now I feel like a 12 year old and I don't get those comments anymore. I think a lot of people are hesitant to ask about braces, only a couple people I know have taken notice of them and asked about it, other than that I think a lot of people wonder but don't ask. I don't really care because I know its temporary and I really want to have jaw surgery so the braces will just have to work themselves into my look for the next year or so. Although I do miss being able to eat in public with no worries.
These are some pictures from Canada day, we went to Cobourg which is about an hour away from Toronto, off of Lake Ontario, they were having lots of Canada Days festivities.
