Just Started, Not Used to Them Yet.
Three days in, and my mouth still hasn't adjusted...
- 14 Feb 2008
Three days in, and my mouth still hasn't adjusted to the trays. My salivary glands are working overtime and there's a slight burning sensation on my cheeks and gums. I'll be asking my dentist about this if it doesn't go away in the next couple days. I had braces as a child, so I expected pain due to the pressure, but not this. Based on what I've read, most people experience drymouth, but I seem to be exactly the opposite.
My dentist told my about the attachments and the possibility of some filing to make room for my crowded lower front teeth. She also told that some additional adjustments (no additional charge) may be needed at the end of this initial 30 weeks, and that I would need to wear a retainer at night for basically the rest of my life.
