One of my big sensory issues is that I have an oral fixation. I like to suck my thumb. No big deal, right?
My dentist is VERY concerned that my habit is doing some damage to my mouth. It appears that because I suck my thumb so much it is causing my teeth to miss-align.
So, this morning I get to go to the dentist to have an appliance put on my teeth to keep me from sucking my thumb and to prevent my teeth from moving the wrong way anymore.
I am nervous. And I am afraid its going to hurt.
