Tongue Tamers

My orthodontic treatment has taken a weird twist. In order to prevent tongue thrusting or resting the tongue on the backs of my upper teeth (which pushes the teeth forward) i had these things installed on Wednesday. They're glued on like brackets, but have sharp dagger points to punish the tongue when it's in the wrong position.
