Bite Correction

I got my teeth cleaned today, and thanks to my dentist Cheryl Tomasulo (who I’ve just Googled and discovered is a well-known sexpot dentist), I was able to see a Dr Gary Ruth, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, just a few hours later. That certainly beats waiting another 2 weeks for the previous appointment I’d made.

Apparently part of my upper jaw has dropped down a millimetre or two as a result of the maxillary fractures (see below), and has now started to set in a position where I have a “maloccluded bite.” According to Dr Ruth, this condition is “not compatible with life,” and needs to be sorted. I couldn’t agree more.

So, now I have to go back and have “bite correction,” which, in addition to sounding a bit like an S&M activity, also sounds like it might be both painful, time-consuming and expensive.
