owie...

My front bottom teeth hurt. They hurt because the "permanent" retainer that was glued to the back of them has come loose from one side. I'm tempted to rip the whole thing off myself, except that I'm worried I might hurt something. So my mother is calling my orthodontist (the guy who put the braces on my teeth about seven years ago and a couple hundred miles away) to check to see whether I can just take the damn thing off or whether I'll have to find someone up here to reattach it for me, or what. In any case, it's irritating enough to keep me from concentrating on studying for the German test I've got in half an hour (EEK!). And then another class that I THOUGHT I didn't have to go to today, but it turns out that I do. Today is just chock-full of aggrivation.

Ouch!!!! Hope you can get that taken care of. Dr. Veronica Cooper in Bemidji is my dentist. She is wonderful. Her husband is an orthodontist. Maybe one of them could help you.

Thanks for the advice. I ended up calling Dr. Cooper's office (the orthodontist) and made an appointment there for next Thursday. It seems to have stopped hurting now, so I can wait a week until I can get in to see him.

I'm so glad you called him. My daughter went to him for her braces, and she really liked him. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! See you next Tuesday!
