On Sunday, I noticed my bracket on my front, lower, left canine (third one in from the middle) felt differently, but I wasnâ€™t sure why.
My curious tongue just kept trying to check it out and it seemed like there was space at the top of the bracket between the base and my tooth.
I brushed my teeth and, yes, somehow, some space has appeared.
Then yesterday, I noticed my tooth kind of felt sensitive when I was brushing my teeth. Â There wasnâ€™t anything I could do about it, though as it wasÂ a holiday.Â
Today, it is feeling the same as yesterday.Â Itâ€™s sensitive, but not to the point Iâ€™m concerned. Â I took a look at it, and it appears to only be debonded closer to the top of my tooth (not the root). Â Maybe it will be a quick fix?
I called 3Mâ€™s Incognito Specialist to see if I should call my doctor. Â The thing is, I already have an appointment booked for Thursday, so I was hoping it would be okay to wait until then. Â She said I should definitely call him, so I will!
In the meantime, Iâ€™ve been trying to think about how this could have possibly happened. Â I first noticed it during my lunch on Saturday, which was a chicken sandwich.Â I wouldnâ€™t say it was the best chicken sandwich Iâ€™ve ever had, but it certainly wasnâ€™t something I thought would remove a bracket.
I asked 3Mâ€™s Incognito Specialist if it could have been my meal, and she said she hears about it all the time that something seemingly soft has caused a bracket to debond. Â She said what most likely happened was that it was fractured by something hard in the past, and that biting down on the sandwich was the final straw for that bond.
Regardless of when and how it happened, I feel awful. Â I really liked knowing that I didnâ€™t debond any brackets during my treatment! Â I guess Iâ€™ll find out what how bad it is on Thursday, if not before, depending on what the doctor says when I call.
Wish me luck!!
It’s officially debonded.Â Â I.Â Feel.Â Awful. Â Off to the ortho!
