Approximately 14 hours from now I have the pleasure of being sedated in a doctor’s office to have my “braces” removed.
This is a great thing.
I probably should have been ‘blogging more about my recent run-in with the American medical system as his ‘blog of my is titled “maninplastic” for that very reason. In the Fall of 2007 I fell and spent 12 weeks wrapped in a plastic shell brace. Therein came the name.

Anyway on January 8, 2010 I had surgery and had these braces affixed to my upper and lower teeth. All of them. These suckers are definitely attached to my teeth and removal includes a trip to la-la land under the careful eye of some well-trained medical professionals.

Although this is slightly a cross-post with my Facebook page, I’ll add this x-ray image of my mouth to liven the page up.

See you without a metal mouth real soon!
