I had that orthodontist appointment. She took pictures and x-rays and did this and that with my jaw and told me that I am already losing cartilage or whatever due to a misposition of my jawbone. She urged me to get braces (again!). I finally got the estimate and had to swallow hard. She will charge me five times my monthly salary. There is no chance that my health insurance will pay a single cent.

I will have to calculate it next week, but I guess there is nothing else I can do.
