With the closing of dentists and orthodontists, I have no idea when I’ll get to have my next orthodontist appointment. I currently have one scheduled for April 13th, but I’m guessing it will be canceled. That date is already 3 weeks late for my adjustment. Which means that my braces aren’t really doing any work right now. They are just…there.
When I got them on in January of 2019, he told me it would be 10-12 months. As of my last appointment, he said it would be at least another 6 months now. And now…who knows.
I want them off. NOW. My anxiety is quickly rising. I feel trapped in them.
I can feel my bite doing all kinds of weird things. And I can’t do anything about it. And I’m worried if something accidentally happens with them, I can’t go in to get it fixed.
I’m sick of them. I don’t want sore cheeks and poking wires anymore. I just went through an infection a few weeks ago (THANK GOD I got in to get it taken care of before things closed) from an orthodontic implant.
I can’t take it. My mind is racing. Seems like something not to get too upset about, but I am, and I can’t help it. My anxiety does that. Likes to make me worry over things I shouldn’t. But I want them off.
