They were supposed to be taken out before I got braces when I was around 12 for being severely impacted in my narrow palette, but weren't. Now they're breaking sideways through my gums, bunching my teeth, and causing TMJ. A little less than a month to go for my dentist appointment and fingers crossed I'll get a referral for removal, and fingers crossed even more that insurance will cover it. Until then, it's soup and constant Ibuprofen, says the doctor.
The fact today's painting upload also concerns the same cheek is pure coincidence, I swear.
