Had an ortho appointment this morn. I got the dreaded TPA back in on top. He left the lingual arch bar for the bottom off though. Said he just wanted to work on the top and at this point so close to surgery he is going to leave it be until after it's done. They booked me for another set of molds. I was a little disappointed since I thought the set I took a few weeks ago would be the last, but he wants another to have the most up to date picture of my mouth. It's a good thing, but I absolutely HATE taking those molds. I feel like I'm choking when that goo is in the back of my mouth, and then it feels like my teeth are being ripped out when they yank the trays back off. It's definitely not the worst thing you can go through during this whole process, but it's definitely not pleasant. Otherwise I'm scheduled for my last teeth cleaning, the wires swapped for that, the surgical hooks being put on the day before surgery, and the removal of the TPA. My xrays and CT scans are next week, pre op appointment next week, and blood work done at the end of the month with my last pre op phone appointment. I think that is everything that needs to be booked before surgery. Kinda scary. Time really is flying by!
A few pics since I haven't had some for a while.
