Morning Report

My jaw hurt. Tooth decay? Another crown for my queenly head? Or too much <<smiling>>? Went to dentist — a new one, since my dentist of 35 yrs retired. Conclusion: After 60 years and a brace-free childhood, my teeth have drifted somewhat out of alignment. In the front, my uppers and lowers no longer mesh. In the back, my lower jaw sort of slides slightly sideways to bite. Result: muscle tension, aches and pains. Remedy: evaluation for a splint or mouth guard to sleep with.

I knew this! I complained twice to my old dentist about this. He made me think I was imagining things…

Ok, enough complaining.
