|I have the best househelper ever!|
|Can't believe I'm putting wax in my mouth.|
The wires and hooks from the braces have been bugging me a little though and I now have two little ulcers in my mouth caused by the hooks in my metal braces on my lower jaw. I didn't quite think that I'd want to use the dental wax that my ortho provided, but having a little hook dig in all day everytime I move my mouth or talk, I've decided to give it a go. Turns out, they help a little...but I think I should have really put them on before the little craters in my cheek were made.
|Yes, I've already signed up and will be running the full marathon! :)|
And it starts today.
On other notes:
I've been practicing using a straw, and it apparently helps when I stick the straw all the way in to the back of my mouth. I think it helps position my lips to close further down the straw...not to mention it ensures all liquid goes straight into my throat without dirtying the braces on my molars. :) I shall pay Starbucks a visit one of these days to celebrate my "new found" skill. :D
