So I had my lots of fillings dental appointment today. One of the cavities was visible in the mirror, and afterwards I can't even tell it was there. Only one cavity required anesthesia, and for the first time ever I had a shot I didn't feel... I felt the first shot barely and the second one not at all (I think it was just a 'booster' shot).

This was followed up by an orthodontic screening. She said pretty much the same as the guy I saw in Terre Haute (good), and so I'm going to go ahead and get it done.

So with the ortho I had a cephalometric x-ray, which was... weird. In order to make sure that they give it in a 'fair' manner, they have this device that you put your head in and it puts little rod-thingies in your ears. You're also supposed to bite down when getting this, but with those things in my ears it was hard. Hopefully that x-ray says that I don't need jaw surgery to correct my biggest problem...

In each quadrant of the mouth an adult person has 8 teeth. Going from front tooth (1) to wisdom (8) (Note: I know that the numbers are really 1-32 with 1,16,17,32 all as wisdom teeth, but hey, I don't care)

1 - Sort of touches
2 - Doesn't touch
3 - Doesn't touch
4 - Doesn't touch
5 - Touches poorly
6 - Touches poorly
7 - Touches poorly
8 - Removed


Oh, and in case people were wondering...
