Dear Cherie, it is quite easy as when they broke my jaw at another Dental Hospital I was unaware of it although it did hurt. So they had to re break my jaw in this new place I go to, to re straighten it, or alignment as they call it, they decided to take my teeth out as well. I was informed as my jaw heals and my gums become harder I could have new teeth. However although I have been back there frequent times, and had X rays etc. they were not happy with it. The last time I went they decided that at last they could do it. The problem was for two years I have had a broken jaw and since April no teeth, plus a extreme mistrust of Dentists. So I learnt to talk with no teeth, and keep my mouth shut as my jaw hurt.
So when they wanted to do these moulds and asked me to open wide it hurt as I have not had to do that in a long time, so they did it which hurt even more.
When they had to re break my jaw they thought of the way my teeth were positioned, and took what was left of them out, under a full unaesthetic so I knew nothing about it till I woke up. So that is why they could not make moulds at the time.
In the Hospital I go now they are very good to me (sometimes), as I am a difficult case due to the fact of my jaw being broken in the other Hospital, then having to be re broken in this one, and not being the most willing of patients.
Never mind I may be able to eat Goose for Christmas!
