Weigh-in Day...and a Dentist Visit
Goal Weight: 145 lbs
This Week's Weight: 141.2 lbs
I broke a big chunk off of my crown about two weeks ago and finally got to see my dentist yesterday.
Oh the exciting life lead.
Luckily, the crown was repairable and I didn't need a new crown. (Phew! That's humungo $$$).
The dentist told me that it looks like I am grinding my teeth at night.
I looked at her skeptically.
Question authority, people.
I know that most people experience day time headaches with night teeth grinding.
So I asked her if someone had to chew all of their foods to the consistency of applesauce before swallowing would also show the same wear as grinding teeth at night. And guess what she said:
I've sometimes thought about that extra bandster chewing and it effects on our teeth.
In case you were wondering, she wasn't trying to sell me some expensive mouth guard. She told me to go down to Target or Wal Mart and buy one. Which I won't.
She also said that with my extra chewing that any future crowns that I get should be metal (gold) as they will hold up better. I just smiled at her and thought in my head "Let's not and just say that we will. That Mike Tyson impersonation can wait."
