Today’s trip to the dentist saw me having the rubber spacers removed and a large metal bridge thing forced between my back teeth in my upper jaw. The dentist said it was to prevent the back teeth from moving. At first I nearly gagged when I felt the metal wire across the top of my mouth and had to struggle a bit to swallow or say certain consonants. Right now it’s back to discomfort time and possibly a rehash of last week’s teeth pain. I can also constantly taste a metallic tang in my mouth but it’s different from that of steel or blood.
Also, he took several more photographs.
Payment wise, the nurse mentioned that I had already paid SGD$120 for this metal thing previously, so I did not pay anything this time. I think I have lost track of the money I’ve paid.
The next appointment would be sometime in September. By the way, I’m working on another progress post (more procrastination) so that this blog’s content still remains relevant.
Edit: Food is a struggle as it gets stuck at the back of the mouth and movement of the tongue is slightly restricted so more gagging.
