Those damn retainers!

My teeth hurt.

Yes, you’ve read it right! It’s not just a single tooth. It’s my whole mouth and jaw to be exact that hurt. In case you didn’t know, I used to have braces and decided to have it taken off a few months ago. In place of it, my dentist gave me a pair of retainers to keep my teeth perfectly aligned. I was told to wear it the whole day (except when you eat), every day for two years to keep my teeth from going back to its ugly crooked past.

Being a stubborn ass, I only wear it when I sleep or when I get too stubborn don’t wear it at all for weeks. The bad thing about not wearing it for a long time is your teeth moves slightly – so much that your retainer won’t fit the same way it does as compared when you obey your dentist.

You may be asking why I don’t wear my retainers every day. Well, let me count the reasons:

  1. It’s such a hassle. You have to take it off before you eat!
  2. People make fun of you when you speak. You suddenly get the lisp.
  3. It hurts like hell!
  4. It’s disgusting! You either drool a lot when you sleep or your saliva gets stuck on the roof of your mouth.
  5. You look like a dork when you wear it!

Sa mga mambabasa ko, naisingit ko lang. Sakit kasi talaga ng ipen ko eh!hehe
