Anyway, so apparently I should be getting my teeth taken out on Monday, but I still haven't had a confirmation letter from the hospital, so I don't know where I'm meant go when I get there or what time I've got to be there or anything. I'm a bit nervous cos I've never had any kind of operation before, so I'm a bit worried about going under anaesthetic and everything!

It's really helpful and great for finding out about other people's experiences and asking any questions you've got!
When I last saw the orthodontist she asked if I got any clicking or pain, and I said no, but recently I've noticed the clicking. I don't know whether it was always there and I've only just noticed it, or whether it's just coincidence that it's started just after she asked me about it!
I've also felt like it's been aching a bit in my jaw joint, but this is probably all just in my head! But the clicking is definitely there, and it kind of reassures me that I'm doing the right thing cos I've heard that lots of people with jaw problems get clicking and pain, and that's part of the reason they get the surgery.

Overbite from left
Overbite from right
Overbite from underneath (I didn't realise how wonky they'd got since my last braces!)
Top teeth (the wire behind my front four teeth is a permanent brace that was put in when I had braces before to stop my two front teeth crossing back over...I don't know what will happen to it now that I'm having braces again!)
Bottom teeth (excuse the fillings!)
So I have...
21st January - pre-op appointment for having my wisdom teeth out
31st January - having my wisdom teeth out!
Don't really know what the last two appointments are for, but I'm guessing/hoping that maybe I'll be getting my braces on then. Part of me is dreading the braces cos obviously they're not the most attractive things! But then most of me is glad to be getting them on and moving on with the whole process! As well as knowing that the braces are the beginning of changing my bite, it will also be nice to see my teeth straighten out again cos inevitably they've moved a bit from when I had them when I was a teenager!
