I passed out at the grocery store and broke the fall with my face. :pJust went in for surgical placement of arch bars yesterday, Does anyone else have massive amounts of metal wires and the tabs cutting their gums. Also since I lost some teeth in the fall should the arch bars be on the front gums( very painful) its turning my gums black and hurts terribly. Will they put me to sleep to have these medieval things taken off or can I opt to just get rid of them in abt 4 weeks by myself?:confused:
