2014 and 2015 Update!

Um, yeah, so babies really take your attention away from your blog about teeth etc. Sorry!Anyway, everything is still great and there are no problems with my teeth or jaw. I am STILL not totally used to my face and the way it moves. Like, I used to be able to see my top teeth when I had "resting bitch face", lol. Now, I do not. But oh well. My smile looks a bajillion times better. I guess that is the trade off.

2013 Update!


Yep... it's all the same.  This blog gets  a lot of traffic, too.  Almost 100k views now.  And heck no I don't advertise.  I also delete posts and comments from advertisers and peeps trying to promote their biz.  So don't bother trying!

Anyway, what is new?  OMG I had a baby!  She totally has no teeth though, so I can't really post pics because it would just be all about the baby and that has nothing to do with surgery.  Although I did post my wedding pic, and that has nothign to do with surgery now does it?

Ok truth is I don't want to post super clear pics of my baby.  Sorry. She's just ours.  But she's awesome and cute, and she sleeps through the night and has since the beginning.  I knock on wood.  I really do.

2012 Update!

Everything's going GREAT still!  Ha ha look how totally cool I can be, ha ha ha... Sigh.  Sorry 'bout this.  I was bored in a cab one day.  Don't hate-mail me about this ridiculousness.   

This is me and best guy in the universe camping in Big Sur, CA!  Straight teeth! 

NOT Smiling... But just for blog-effect!  I'm at "work" here.  Can you tell?  This is what your psychotherapist does between sessions.  Not really.  Okay really.  

Driving the PCH all convertible-like.

So long story short, NO changes and NO problems.  I continue to use my dental-guard thingy once every few weeks to keep my teeth truly in line.  Flossing with SUPERFLOSS (it's great and so much easier than those threaders, I mean COME ON).  Electric toothbrush.  But mostly just in love and happy and continuing on with life.  Once again, I would recommend this surgery, but again, be prepared for an adjustment period of up to one year.  'Til next year, you unfortunate surgery-goers. 'Til next year.  xo

Update 2011

Hello toothy jaw folk. Well it's almost 2 years now since my awesome fun surgery. Just wanted to post another update on all the changes that have happened... Basically, no TMJ anymore, still some numbness but I don't really mind (aka "I've adjusted"), and still some days I feel like I look funny (i.e. my face is different, and it's still a little weird to me). In any event, I am glad that I have good chompers now, and that I am no longer degenerating (or grinding and clicking and wearing down my jaw). That, and I got married! Here's a little pic of the elopement at the Art Gallery of Ontario on November 26, 2010! I married the most wonderful, kind, and loving man alive and couldn't be happier! Who knew??? :)

Those summer nights.

Aaaaah!!! I love LOVE summer! This is a toothless smile. Getting ready for the cottage... going to movies, concerts, more concerts, and more concerts. I am still learning guitar, and have started "training" for my surf trip by swimming 3x per week for 40 minutes. All I have to do now is add some yoga, and I'm good to go. I hope. My surfboard is NOT going to hit me in the jaw... repeat to self 3 times when necessary.

This is a nice little pic of me and my mfeo (made for each other... I know... a little sleepless in seattle reference for anyone over 25) camping buddy up above... after a little 5k hike up a very buggy trail on Rock Lake. He's the best.

Ok campers... enjoy your surg-journey!!! Oh GOD does it suck like a mo-fo. Say "no" to bad oral hygiene.

What happened to this post?

Apparently I posted air. Anyway, just a note to say everything is still super awesome fantastic. Life is experienced and breathed in with appreciation, career is sailing along. I don't watch t.v. anymore. I am going surfing ... SURFING in October! Camping in Algonquin, cottages #1, 2, and 3 this summer. I am dating the best man in the universe and cannot believe my incredible luck. Niece & nephew are cute and healthy. Family is healthy and well. Best friend is getting married at the Gardiner - which was coincidentally designed by the best man in the universe. I count my blessings daily. As for the teeth... straight as ever. Broke the retainer, but no big deal.

Good luck to anyone reading this who is about to have surgery. It sucks. You won't be eating or breathing right for 2 weeks minimum. Enjoy the silence. Revel in the dvd time. Let yourself be sucked into the la-z-boy. It's so good if you are willing to enter into a world of apathy. It can be quite indulgent and, also... incredibly uncomfortable. xo

Happy these days I guess. Didn't know I had so many laugh lines either. This is a good thing.
