Tomorrow is the big day.
I will be having four teeth extracted. I'm scared. Yet at the same time I feel like I'm making it a bigger deal than it really is. I love my dentist and know he will take good care of me.
I plan to take an anxiety pill before my appointment. I've never taken anything like that before. I'm hoping it will help me relax.
Since I have no idea how eating will go with four teeth missing and I'm getting braces as soon as I'm all healed, I decided that today was clearly meant for eating anything I want. From what I can tell I'm going to be living off of mashed potatoes for the next few months.
My dad and granny surprised me and took me to Las Playitas for lunch today.
It was yummy as always.
It's an extra bonus that I was able to get out of the house. Today has been our third snow day in this round of icy weather.
I'm documenting this journey through adult braces in every way possible. I'm posting pictures on Instagram, I'm blogging about it, and I'm even keeping a video diary. My first video is up on Youtube now.
Somehow documenting everything with the hope that it will help someone else with the decision to get adult braces helps make everything a little easier.
Today is the last day I will have this smile and all of these teeth.
Tomorrow I lose the fourth tooth from the front on both sides top and bottom.
