Show and Tell

This is for Mel’s weekly Show and Tell, which I will link to when it goes up. 

Plaster cast of my teeth

Plaster cast of my teethnight guard

While the plaster cast is a bit gruesome, I think the night guard is quite pretty.  I got it made back when I was grinding my teeth a lot at night due to frustration over night waking and sleep training.  I still use it occasionally, when I feel tension in my jaw at night. showtell21
I was so happy to be allowed to bring the plaster cast home!  “At last,” I thought, “something I can post on Mel’s Show and Tell!”  If I had Niobe’s mad skillz, I would photo edit it into an artful comment on mortality.  But for now I just keep it on my desk because – oh, I don’t know – it just looks cool.

    my DH actually makes these! he is a dental laboratory apprentice in the air force. after the dentist or dental assistant takes the impression of your teeth he takes over and builds you whatever it is you need, be it a night guard, crown, retainer, bleaching trays, etc. definitely hold onto your cast, they can use it again for whatever you may need.
    very cool, thanks for sharing!
