Right after the procedure I was fine. I went and got in my car. I drove home, which is about a 15 minute drive. I had no pain at all. Zero. I haven't had any pain since I got out of this chair. First of all, one of the girls here called me and asked me how I was doing. I said, "I'm fine." And the Doctor called. I didn't expect to be pain free or swelling free. It was just an amazing experience for me.
I had expected there'd be a lot of pain. Especially afterwards when the needles wore off. It was excellent.
After the procedure, I didn't take any pain pills. I really felt good. It didn't bother me, really. I think Dr. David Bistritz is really professional and I'm happy.
For at least two years I've been agonizing over these teeth, and I have been deathly afraid of doing anything. It's finally got to the point where I was resigned I'd have to do something. There was no pain at the end of the day. I had dinner. It was fine. It was more than I had ever thought would happen.
I've been grinding for probably something like 15 years. I'm 29. He had mentioned at the last visit that I should get a night guard and I was thinking about it. In the meantime, I put in my retainer which is a really similar idea, and I've been wearing that for the past week or so. I noticed an immediate change when I was wearing it. I woke up in the morning without the tense feeling in my jaw that I'd been used to, for all my life. Which I didn't realize was from grinding, because I was so used to waking up feeling kind of stressed out and tense. Once I started wearing my retainer, which prevents me from clenching and grinding, I noticed immediately I woke up feeling more rested and less tense. I didn't have jaw pain or tooth pain in the morning, which I was so used to, I didn't even associate the two together. Once he had pointed out that, this is probably what is the cause of all these problems and I started wearing the retainer, there was an immediate change.
