I made an appointment to see an orthodontist this week. I thought for sure that I would be laughed out of the office. So I found out that if I don't get my overbite and overjet corrected, eventually my bottom teeth will be hitting the roof of my mouth and push my front teeth farther out. The downside is I can't get a full set of clear braces because of my penchant for grinding and the fact that I have big top teeth in comparison to my small bottom teeth. I wouldn't want to chip my top teeth on the porcelain brackets! So it'll probably be metal bottoms and clear tops. The upside is the ortho dude predicts only 10 months of metal mouth! Maybe my TMJ disorder will go away...one can always hope.
