There’s too much going on to report in blog format but I will tell you one thing. And it’s a disturbing thing, too.
When I sleep, APPARENTLY my mouth falls open and then somehow my top lip gets stuck on the left lateral incisor. And by stuck, I mean that the inside membrane of my lip dries out and bonds with the tooth surface. Here’s a helpful graphic:
And it’s really stuck, too. It doesn’t just pop off when I wake up. It takes some concentrated lip movement sometimes with a finger/thumb assist to free it. And then I have a sore spot on my lip, similar to a self-inflicted bite. Now considering that I sleep at least twice in a 24 hour cycle – all hail the cat nap! – the sore spot never gets a chance to heal up. This has only been happening for about 2 weeks, but it happens every time I sleep.
I’m sure you’ll agree that this is quite a disturbing turn of events.
