Because if anyone can do it, By God, I’m gonna try!
My dentist told me that because I grind my teeth at night that I need to wear a bite plate.
I’ve been TRYING to wear the damnable contraption for a few nights now, but the thing hurts like the dickens. It’s nowhere NEAR comfortable enough for me to try to wear for the entire night and get a decent night’s sleep.
The pain of wearing this thing all night would be the equivalent of hiring someone to stand over me while I’m sleeping and periodically punch me in the balls every few hours.
Actually, that sounds mildly better than having this fucking horse bridle strapped inside my mouth all night.
I keep telling my dentist that it’s hurting me, so he keeps telling me to come back in, and then he makes some inconsequential ‘adjustment’ to it, and tells me to try it again.
And again. And again.
Seriously, I’ve been to the dentist 9 times in the past 2 weeks. I don’t see my SON that often! A few more visits and I think it will be safe to say that my dentist and I are officially dating.
At least he’s a good kisser.
What I want to know is….. does anyone else out there have to wear one of these things? And if so, is YOURS comfortable?
Because MY dentist told me that ultimately this thing should be “refreshing” (his words) when I pop it in.
And right now, it’s the farthest fucking thing from “refreshing” as it CAN be…
