Last week at the ortho I brushed off the routine question at the end of the appointment, "Is anything poking you?" For those of you lucky enough to not have or ever have braces, this is usually asked after putting new wires and 'bling' in your mouth. So, having been asked this question now numerous times, and feeling like quite a pro at this point, I just shrugged off this question and said, "I'm fiiiiine." -- in ever attempt to get outta there and get back to work. Why? Because I'm completely bizarre.
Welp, I screwed up. There is totally a wire poking directly into my cheek. I thought I would toughen up at this point and move on but...after several days of reaching for wax at every moment, I'm thinking...maybe I should call? Even more concerning, I will soon be out of wax (ahhh!) and I have no idea where to buy something like this. Guess when I was asked at my last appointment if I wanted some extra wax I shouldn't have said, "Oooh noooo. (so beneath me) I don't need that stuff anymore. My mouth is totally used to it."
Oh, and by the way, is it dangerous to swallow wax? Definitely have...more than once. Will it sit in my stomach for 10 years like gum? Anyone?
