So if you haven't heard me talk recently, Friday I was fortunate enough to receive along with my bottom braces a lovely "bite plate". Apparently this overbite I have is in need of some serious correction. Now being naieve as I am, I thought this would be not a huge deal, slightly more cumbersome , but hey for Hollywood teeth what you can you expect? You have to give a little and I'm up for the challenge. HOWEVER after trying to wait my 3 hours before eating I was famished. So I sit down only to find that I can no longer eat.
The function of the bite plate is to not let my top teeth overlap my bottom teeth, therefore rendering me incapable of chewing since my molars are miles away from meeting. Lucky for me its Labor Day Weekend... and there is no eating whatsoever involved in this holiday. The upside in all this, the scale has beamed a lower number today than in MANY weeks past.
So bring on the metal appliances. I'll have Hollywood teeth and a Hollywood starved body.
