  1. p values are in parentheses, where ***p < 0.01, **p < 0.05, *p < 0.1
  2. An underscore (_) represents an interaction between variables i.e. Hurt2_LY is Hurt2 multiplied by LY. Hurt2: my teeth hurt me a bit; Hurt3: my teeth hurt me a lot; Annoy2: my teeth annoy me a bit; Annoy3: my teeth annoy me a lot; Awake2: my teeth keep me awake a bit; Awake3: my teeth keep me awake a lot; Eat2: my teeth make it a bit hard to eat some foods; Eat3: my teeth make it really hard to eat some foods; Cry2: my teeth make me cry a bit; Cry3: my teeth make me cry a lot; LY: duration
