The zebra striped gum of dental equipment

u/AhoyPalloi Nov 17 '21

This brings back a painful suppressed memory.

When I was 10 or so, I went to the dentist and got one of those "Fluoride Treatments", where you have to have that bubble gum flavored awful shit on a tray in your mouth for like 5 minutes. The dentist gave me a big jar filled with rubber toys and told me to pick one out, and left.

Well, waaay more than 5 minutes went by. I'm pretty sure he forgot about me, and this tray full of crap is seeping down the back of my throat, and I'm getting sick and so I started hucking the toys out the door of the room to get someone's attention.

The dentist finally rushes back in, but acts all cool like nothing happened. "Okaaaay... lets get this tray removed now."

Tell that to my dog. I had mine for one day, I took it out and put it on my nightstand to go brush my teeth, and when I came back he was chewing on it like it was the greatest toy he’s ever had.

u/wolfxor Nov 16 '21

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't you supposed to wear a retainer nightly for the rest of your life if you've had braces? I thought if you don't, your teeth could get all messed up again.

12

u/clockworkrevolution Nov 16 '21

I still wear the retainer for my upper teeth (I have a metal bar retaining the front 5-6 teeth on my lower jaw), and I haven't had braces for over 10 years. My dentist said I could stop, and I think my siblings (who had braces as well) stopped, but my teeth feel loose if I go a night without it, so I'll keep wearing it.

5

u/prairiewest Nov 17 '21

I can skip a few nights and not notice, but when I try to skip a week I regret it. I'm old, so I thought they wouldn't move. The orthodontist was like "well if they didn't move, then the braces wouldn't have worked".

Oh. Right.

So I'm over 50, wearing a retainer every night. Probably will never stop, since I have no desire to have work done again on my decently straight teeth.

u/Doc_Lewis Nov 17 '21

That's the new guidance, years ago orthodontists just had you wear a retainer for a few years after braces. FWIW I had braces and only wore my retainer for like 2 years after, and my teeth haven't moved since, it's been 15 years.

u/Azair_Blaidd Nov 16 '21

I opted for the permanent retainer. Little wire like what goes on braces but glued to the back of the front incisors and canines

Fifth grade, orthodontist's office after molds, x-rays, etc. Two options: 5-7 years of braces, headgear, yadda yadda; or wait until I'm 19ish, break jaw and set it with underbite corrected.

Kid me was a giant pussy, he went with the non-bone-snapping option. That shit suuuucked. I still don't like eating whole apples or corn on the cob, twenty years later. Two separate year long spans in middle and high school I had to wear this massive appliance all day and night. But it worked pretty well.

Guess what I did two months before my 19th birthday, when trying to send it in the terrain park after snowboarding only 3-4 times.

u/cderry Nov 17 '21

I had two reconstructive jaw surgeries when I was younger. One, because of a ridiculous overbite, they took two pieces of ribs and put them behind my lower jaw. About 10 years later, one side was growing too fast and they did another surgery where they forcibly broke the jaw, repositioned it, and wired it shut. I drank my food through a straw for a month.

I...don't recommend it.

u/dstaylo6 Nov 17 '21

I had the same thing done, but I highly recommend it! No sarcasm, made my life much better!

u/cderry Nov 17 '21

If you’re serious, then you’re the only person I’ve ever heard also had it done.

7

u/dstaylo6 Nov 17 '21

They corrected my lower jaw because it was growing out too much and it was a bit sideways. They took some bone out and I have lots of screws and plates in my head. The orthodontist said if I had it done it would save me years if TMJ and jaw problems. They couldn't do some dental work because my back teeth didn't touch. I had it done when I was 18 and don't get me wrong it sucked having everything wired shut and only drinking milkshakes for 6 weeks, but I'll take that over years of dental problems as an adult!

u/SynesthesiaBrah Nov 16 '21

Dentists break jaws? What lol? What do you mean lol? Like they crack it off and glue your jaw back together?

4

u/Turtleships Nov 17 '21

Dentists can do further training in maxillofacial surgery. Alternatively, a specialized ENT or Ortho surgeon could do it but generally they leave teeth issues to dentists. And yes, they would break the jaw, but probably not in the way you’re thinking, and glue certainly wouldn’t hold it together. Think metal and screws, like bone carpenters. For reference, try looking up orthognathic surgery.

u/Caucasian_Fury Nov 17 '21

Same, had all four of my wisdoms taken out at the same time in one go when I was a teen, most blood I've seen in my life till I watched my kids be born.

5

u/Atiggerx33 Nov 17 '21

I had all 4 of mine removed as well for the same reason. Except I can't do the anesthesia they give. I have a paradoxical reaction and the only time I tried it sent me into a delusional panicked state where I believed the oral surgeon and the assistants were trying to murder me; they held me down trying to continue, which only made me more sure in my drug addled brain that they were trying to kill me. I ended up kicking and punching people in my attempt to escape.

I am not at all proud of my reaction, but I really did think, at the time and under the influence of the drugs, that I was being murdered and I believed I was fighting for my life. Afterwards (like the next day when I was in my right mind) I apologized profusely and sent an edible arrangement to their office.

They managed to remove one of my wisdom teeth before my reaction set in (they only held me down long enough to do the stitches on the one). I had the other 3 removed with just novocaine, a much more pleasurable experience for me because, while I was nervous, it didn't hurt and I didn't think anyone was trying to kill me.

Meanwhile, I never even had 1 come in. It's apparently genetic and my mom didn't either.

I'll be 33 in April and still have 3 baby teeth too. Permanent teeth kind of grew up and over them so they're pretty much locked in place and as long as I take care of my teeth I should be good for another 10-15 years.

Thank god I didn't get get my wisdom teeth though. There's almost no room in my mouth anyways. 1 of my 3 baby teeth is on top and my teeth are crowded. The other 2 are on bottom and my teeth are nice and straight down there. If I had all my permanent teeth and wisdom teeth, my teeth would have been jacked the fuck up.

3

u/Yiski87 Nov 16 '21

Oof... I had those at one point. I think those are called 'impacted molars'.

Anyways, I had to get surgery to remove them. Got put on anesthesia. When I woke up, I somehow got moved from the operating table to the doctor's office in a reclined chair and a blanket on me.

I asked how long I was out for and the doc said 20 minutes. With how well-rested I felt, I could've sworn I was out for hours.

5

u/HauntHaunt Nov 16 '21

Do whatever you can to be knocked out for the removal. I had the same issue, the sound and intense vibrations of my jaw being drilled into to remove the sideways wisdom teeth is something I'll never forget.

Oh and the recovery pain was the worst, don't skip on the meds and follow the directions exactly.

3

u/GrimResistance Nov 17 '21

Have you heard the theory that general anesthesia doesn't actually block the pain, it just paralyzes you while you feel everything and makes you forget about it afterwards :)

Oh, hey, I thought I was the only crazy person who agreed to let their crazy dentist do it just with novacaine and fully awake!

General anaesthesia is always a risk, and he thought I'd be a good candidate because I didn't suffer any dental anxiety.

Two separate sessions, an hour or more each, of listening to that drill get bits of my tooth out at a time - I now have dental anxiety. The sound of a dental drill puts me completely on edge.

u/Lecris92 Nov 16 '21

As a consolation, 10 years ago I had a visit showing that my wisdom tooth was almost perpendicular to the other ones and already touching them. But I never had pains from it since that visit. 10 years later and 3/4 are already grown out without a problem, albeit at weird angles (no longer perpendicular, but at an angle towards the outside of my mouth).

Lesson: human physiology is weird.

3

u/Arcturyte Nov 16 '21

All three of my wisdom teeth are this way. Horizontally impacted and connected to my jaw bone. Three because a dentist recommended I take them out because they might cause complications down the line (I was moving to USA for studies where dentists are expensive as fuck).

I said okay and got my lower right one taken out. It took two or three sessions and it hurt so fucking much. The pain was so immense for me that even after multiple shots of local anesthesia, I felt the pain in the middle of my face/mouth. Pain radiates apparently- I imagine it is much like massive objects in space - the greater the pain the farther it’s effects can be felt. I still have a numb point in the middle of my lips.

They literally cut it out of my bone. I could barely sleep for four straight days, and even then I had to try sleeping while sitting up. I took two-three heavy duty pain meds to get through.

That was one tooth. I said, “Fuck that shit!” and am now living with what I can shine to be three very unwise teeth teetering on the verge of fucking my shit up.

Evolution, pls fix.

5

u/Purple_Tree_Car Nov 17 '21

Evolution, pls fix.

It's working on it!

Both of my wisdom teeth were this way and, like you, I had mine drilled out with just novacaine.

Both. I only had my lowers come in. My body skipped producing upper wisdom teeth completely.

I'm so sorry your situation is so bad.

The wisest teeth are the most likely to fuck up

u/July_Sandwich Nov 16 '21

Hopefully it has an emotional support tooth to help get through it.

Do you have any zombie ones yet? I mean the root canal, nerves removed and stuff..

u/AWizard13 Nov 16 '21

Then there's wisdom teeth that come in like "Now ice seen that you've done some good work and finally got your braces off but now imma just come in and mess everything up"

u/Splitfingers Nov 16 '21

One of my wisdom teeth came in sideways. Talk about a major fuck up!

2

u/Not_that_Fran Nov 16 '21

My teeth were fine but then all 4 of my wisdom teeth began growing wrong at the same time like they were trying to do a coup d'etat inside my mouth.

2

u/Richie4876 Nov 16 '21

One of my teeth decided to stay up in my jaw, I had to get some of the roof of my mouth surgically removed and then get braces to pull the tooth down to where it should have been on its own, they were fun times!

Every time I go to the dentist my mouth ends up like the set of a slasher movie

Blood everywhere

u/SOILSYAY Nov 16 '21

I was blessed with relatively straight teeth most of my childhood.

But...now that I'm a stressed out adult, I've had to start wearing a mouth guard to bed, because apparently I'm grinding my teeth to flat nubs.

u/manchest_hair_united Nov 16 '21

Anti wisdom teeth I guess

2

u/thetruesamwise Nov 16 '21

Try having 3 extra wisdom teeth all deciding to grow out of your sinus cavities, that made no God damn sense.

2

u/wotmate Nov 16 '21

You reckon that's bad? My son (6) has got shark teeth.

His lower front two adult teeth are growing in BEHIND his baby teeth. So he's got two rows of lower front teeth. And the baby teeth aren't even loose, so his first trip to the dentist could be to remove the baby teeth so the adult teeth can grow properly.

u/joyce_kap Nov 17 '21

Before turning 18 have your teeth x-rayed to see which one is abnormal and needs to be removed or modified.

When there are any then have the abnormals pulled so that the healthy teeth are unaffected.

The more teeth you can retain the better as you want to keep all of them intact until you die.

- so one of your teeth fucked up

Wisdom tooth peeks from behind rubs hands together

u/Cazadore Nov 16 '21

i remember when i had to get 6(!) teeth removed at once.

all 4 wisdomteeth, 2 destroyed ones where i litterally chewed on the bone... just because i didnt care in my teenage years. at least the removal was for free and under full anestesia.

so people, TAKE CARE OF YOUR TEETH. it becomes very expensive to get them fixed later in life, and you really dont want to have your third teeth aka fakes when you reach your 30s.

u/organyx92 Nov 16 '21

Another one bites the dust

On a more serious note, teeth are messed up, what even are they? Bones that have feelings?

1

u/Anarok101 Nov 16 '21

At least it's only one, I had two teeth on the top grow the wrong way, and it was a pain in the ass getting them fixed.

At least I could pretend they were vampire teeth though cause they fucked up in a neat way.

u/cosmicsnowman Nov 16 '21

I wasnt born with adult teeth but at least all my teeth are so spaced out I don't have to worry about them crowding together

1

u/Cake_Lad Nov 16 '21

I had a similar problem with mine. Dentist had to cut a groove and use a chisel like thing to break the damn thing in half.

My jaw hurt for a week. :(

1

u/kaleph Nov 16 '21

Well, at least your wisdom teeth root wasn’t shaped like a damn hook :/ Dentist had to break the tooth in half, break it apart some more, and pull out piece by piece. It took hours and my jaw hurt for a couple of days.

1

u/IdealIdeas Nov 16 '21

Had all 4 of my wisdom teeth yanked out. It actually wasnt as bad as I was thinking it would be. Just pay to be knocked out when they do it.

Stories ive heard from many other people who dont get knocked out for it regretted it terribly.

I woke up and my jaw was as sore as if I had chewed gum for hours on end way after the gum started getting hard.

1

u/Duckihillation Nov 16 '21

It's ironic how I see this post just a few hours after getting a surgery because one of my teeth fucked up, started rotting from the inside for no reason and was causing immense pain to me

1

u/mooseknuckle09 Nov 16 '21

When I was a kid, one of my teeth grew above my other teeth, like it was starting a second row. They had to pull the baby tooth, then I wore braces that slowly pulled that tooth from above my jaw into it’s rightful place. The pain from that was crazy extreme.

1

u/ISkySplitterI Nov 16 '21

In my case, four of them fucked up and I decided to just have the doc yank all four of them out in one procedure.

I genetically have no wisdom teeth (am 30s now). I am also genetically missing 4 permanent teeth (2 on top, 2 on bottom). I hear people complain about wisdom teeth and I just smile.

u/sjgirjh9orj Nov 17 '21

does the smile have gaps

u/tired_tortoise_ Nov 16 '21

My genes cause 12 of my teeth not to develop, luckily 4 were wisdom teeth. Know I have 6 fake teeth.

u/CommanderSwift Nov 16 '21

As a matter of fact, I’m gonna have all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed today, so this is a very well timed post

u/dallin06 Nov 16 '21

Ayo I fucked up 😔

u/fifth_nephi Nov 16 '21

My sister’s tooth went DOWN. It dove like a submarine and ended up in her jaw, she had to get surgery to remove it.

u/FO_Steven Nov 16 '21

Give your teeth a name for what they did in your mouth. Mine were "The Beetles."

1

u/KamoyLovrstar Nov 16 '21

And that's mine now.im 33 and one baby tooth refuses to give up its space, other teeth in my. Lower jaw are in od placement like they been punched out of line x, x

If my wisdom teeth ever join one is sitting horizontally and scares the crap out of me. Yet my being so far in back my smile looks fine.

1

u/kratz9 Nov 16 '21

My teeth all came in straight because I apparently have a huge cro-magnon jaw. They still pulled my wisdom teeth because I guess they develop cavities while they are covered by gum.

u/The_camperdave Nov 17 '21

Couldn't you have just stopped chewing gum?

For those really "fun" procedures, my endodontist introduced me to a little friend named Halcyon. Game freaking changer.

u/Kaltvene Nov 17 '21

I'm a dentist, want to hear something disgusting? I've had patients spit out chewing tobacco into the trash right before sitting in the chair ready for a filling/extraction. Not even a courtesy rinse.

u/Monksdrunk Nov 17 '21

"also, this one tooth came out as gay"

u/Macapta Nov 17 '21

I had a dentist appointment today, and my dentist said the words no one ever wants to hear when a professional is checking your mouth.

“What the?”

u/jonhon0 Nov 17 '21

I thought this was talking about a line to death. "You move a bit to the front [of the line] like everyone else [in line waiting to die]"
