By the way, my checkup with the oral surgeon yesterday went fine. She rinsed out my extraction sites with good ol’ H6O4 and examined them. She said that I look farther along than I am, which is (obviously) a very good thing. 🙂 My tooth holes are closing up nicely. I can ride my bike again, and I can gently use straws, i.e, for regular beverage consumption but not for milkshakes.
I wish I could get a picture for y’all of what the holes look like. They’re very odd looking, but I’m re-assured now that the oddness is normal.
In other braces news, I ate Chinese food last night after a wicked cool hunt-style road rallye, run by Kol Hadash. We went with my dentist-friend. I managed to bite into and chew my way through an egg roll. Go me! 🙂 I also had pizza for brunch today with great success. I can hardly wait for my gaps to close up. Getting food caught in the gaps is wicked annoying.
