Holy Cow! Saw open my skull… forget that! Look at what they were going to place in my mouth!
It turned out that my jaw structure is so bad, that I couldn’t get braces without having to saw my skull open. The part of the skull above your upper jaw is divided in the middle, so as Children getting braces, they don’t need to worry about that. But as an adult, time has progressed and that division between the two have sealed and solid bone has formed. In order to get braces, my upper jaw had to be expanded to compensate to slip properly over the lower jaw. At this time… the narrowness of my upper jaw, makes my upper jaw fold inward.The procedure would have costed nearly $8,000 with a hospital operation room, and a several year plan for braces thereafter. I couldn’t see myself where what you see in that picture for up to a year. They place that in your mouth after they cut your skull in half (over your upper jaw) to hold open your jaw. They expand and hold your skull open using your teeth to hold open your skull… and over time… the bones will seal themselves together again!I then tried going the route of just having veeners done over my upper jaw… but it would turn out I can’t afford to do it. The cost her veener is really high and I have no way of making that kind of money. Nor do I want to borrow to have it done.Next week I am going back to the dentist to have some stuff done. Knowing I am heading into main stream media in the near future… it’s time to take my dental seriously. No… I am not planning dentures, braces, or mouth reconstruction…My dentist is making me two plates that I will wear in my mouth for 2 hours every other day with liquid whitener that will be inside the plates… so for two hours per day, I will be unable to speak! WOOO HOO for Diva Dan! My teeth have severly yellowed primarily from drinking tea. It is clearly obvious and a major distressor to me… and I am going to see about getting them back to a liveable colour that I am not embarrased by…My teeth are out of alignment and I know it… but OH WELL… I am who I am!Diva Dan has taught me that it’s okay to be me! I’ve never laughed so much because I know I have faults of this and that… but we were never meant to be perfect…I’m trying to get Diva Dan to do the same thing at my expense. I know that our future is Together… that together we will accompany each other to the opportunities ahead. I am doing this for the CreativFestival coming up.Michael
