Just before you go thinking that motorcycle riding is uber cool.
After years of not having any problems (except for, you know - braces), they got really sensitive after the first few fillings that I got back in January and are still bugging me.
I had a check-up a few weeks back and the dentist said that it's from my gums receeding a teensy bit (this is the boring part of the factoid), which he mentioned might be from clenching my teeth. Do I clench my teeth at night? No. Do I grind my teeth? No. I wracked my brain thinking about what the heck would be causing it.
And then I got on the motorcycle the next day and realized there's a constant teeth-clench going on while I ride.
Hah. Maybe it's mister husband's driving? The ability to see the idiots driving next to us & realizing there's nothing much between me, them, & the road? lol.
Anyhoo, funny little realization of mine.
It sure is awesome, but it subconciously stresses me out. Who knew?
It's not an entirely stress-free process for me, yet, especially in town.
