The Splint!

I was fitted for my splint and wore it DAY and NIGHT for about 6 months.  I would go into Dr. Chapman’s office every couple of weeks to have it adjusted so that eventually my bite was in the correct position.  Headaches are gone and am feeling much better!  However, if I take out my splint, everything feels really off!  Dr. Chapman and I have been talking throughout the process, and he has been preparing me for the fact that I am most likely going to need braces!  Yup, I am going to be sporting braces as I enter my 40′s.  Sweet.  However, there are some pretty cool products out there, not the braces I remember from middle school back in the stone ages.  Sooo, I’m focusing on the reason behind my need for braces and am actually kind of excited!   Tomorrow, I get braces!  Woo-hoo!  I feel like I should eat a whole bunch of steak as I’m not sure when I am going to be able to do that again!

Mmmm, Steak!
