Ortho now started, they're skipping a step and going strait towards trying to put the arch back because of how lax my teeth are and holy fuck I am in so much pain I cannot see straight. It feels the same as someone putting all their weight on 3 off my teeth (something they've had to do before) so I am fucked. And the joy of going into debt for the pleasure

Anyone who says pain from braces isn't that bad is a fucking cunt tbh
I used to go home and get drunk after having fixed braces as an adult, so just sailed through the pain a lot. I've been sober now for years and definitely understanding my reasoning for taking that route. Even morphine isn't cutting it 😩

@iconography Sending love. I hope it eases soon.

@MyQueerHeart thank you, and for your consistent and heartfelt kindness over the years

RE - Dentistry/ortho, alcohol 

@iconography You're welcome and thanks so much. :) You're such a kind wonderful person who posts great stuff and it's such a joy to know you.

@iconography I'll have to go back to my braces again in the near future (because I'm dumb af and didn't use the contention as I should) and I already foresee the suffering 😢

@thyago get a lingual wire at the end of it, i swear to fucking god that should be the default, they're amazing. They are genuinely a wonder and means no removable retainers to lose or break at the end, they cannot migrate again (unless something goes wrong)

@iconography I actually had one of those on the lower teeth, but eventually it broke and I (following the amazing sequence of bad choices) didn't go back to the dentist to fix it.. 🤦‍♂️
But yes, that's MUCH better than the removable one I used for the upper teeth!

@iconography btw, good luck with yours... hope the painful part ends soon 😔

@thyago that's pretty much what I had happen, it bent out of shape and took the teeth with it. Temporary retainer during lockdown broke and couldn't keep them in place 😩
Sorry you've had these kind of experiences too. It's horrendous, and so bloody expensive. Should be part of basic healthcare
