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