Decision Made!

I saw the dentist this morning (exactly what you were hoping to read about, I'm sure). I was able to chat with him after my now thrice-yearly cleaning. After reading what the orthodontists had to say, he had basically come to the same conclusion I had -- that this isn't the right time to pursue more aggressive treatment. I'd have to be in a lot more chronic pain than I am at this time to really make it worthwhile.

So for now -- continue the treatment I'm doing (which is the 24-hour splint deal) and monitor progress. It's easier to appreciate this plan when I know exactly what the other options are!
