For those that don't know, (which is probably all of you, LOL) I hate going to the dentist. Like, a lot.

Oh, it's not that I've had bad experiences or anything with them; my dentists have always been decent guys and all. And it's not even that I'm prone to cavities, 90% of my check-ups have good results.

It's just that over 20-ish years, I've gone through having 1) palate expanders, 2) retainers, and 3) braces, alongside the typical cleanings and cavity fillings. I still have braces behind my bottom front teeth that I despise.

Add in the fact that my gumline has a habit of bleeding when I get checked/cleaned, I have some really fricken sensitive teeth, and temporomandibular disorder in one side of my jaw (we're going to try a night guard for that. Yippee.) that makes it SUCK to keep my mouth open for an hour straight...

Yeah, I'm really over people poking inside my mouth.

Oh well, one cavity free checkup down this year, and another 4.5 months until my next visit. Yay. :X

Ugh, palate expanders. I had to get one before I got braces and hated it. Cranking that thing the widen my mouth was a bitch. (The expanders they put in there to make room for it? I was sobbing the first night because I was in so much pain.)

Oh, and I had headgear, which I had the dubious honor of wearing though the Seattle Airport when we moved up here. I managed to console myself by thinking, "I'll never see these people ever again, so who cares?"

tl;dr-- I feel your pain. :c *Internet hug y / n?*
