Re: Wired shut and need nutrition ideas.

For me, I have been wired shut. Teeth on teeth and no movement at all. I carried wire cutters with me every where I went. I had a pair next to my bed and a pair in my purse just in case something happened I would not choke. They are a HORRID invention but kept my jaws in place every time until surgery. Arch bars are a thin piece of metal about as long as you little finger with hooks on it. The bar is wired to your teeth, this means running wire in between your teeth then the top & bottom are wired up and down using the hooks. Not pleasant...but effective. You can look arch bars up on the Internet. Ugh...
