I don't know what sort of bite I have. I'm going to say it's a very severe case of an open bite, simply because it's not an overbite nor underbite and my orthodontist told me it's a class 3 malocclusion. I've had my braces for exactly 2 years & 2 months and I'm so excited I finally have a... READ MORE

My surgeon has suggested moving my lower jaw forward and widening my upper jaw. I started my journey with braces in May 2014 and will be happy when it's all over. I'm terrified for my surgery date but I know it will be worth it in the end. My biggest fear is being unhappy with the shape of my... READ MORE

I have an underbite, surgeons say its not severe compared to some cases but the way to correct it is to go through with jaw surgery. I have had braces for about 18 months and my teeth are completely done with the braces and have been done for a few months now so they stopped tightening them a... READ MORE

Two years ago I went to see an orthodontist to get braces. I knew I had an upper bite thanks to my dad's dna...but still I was very surprised when the orthodontist told me the problem was my lower jaw. Since then I've been through the whole NHS circus and was approved for surgery 19 months ago.... READ MORE

I have had bad teeth as long as I can remember having adult teeth. And as I started working and could afford braces ever orthodontist recommended jaw surgery or extractions. Braces as well of course. Well after many years of thinking about it I decided to do it. This Thursday get braces and... READ MORE

Hi..., I from Russia, I ask your help, for me cheeks strongly fell back since I carried braces. For me two four were remote on a supramaxilla, whereupon for me the profile of person (( was strongly spoilt That it is now possible to do?? Why so Photo happened??? before braces and after, a person... READ MORE

My experience- I had been debating this surgery for years and when i turned 20 i talked to my mom about wanting to learn about it more. We made an appointment with my orthodontist and that was the first step. I had to wear braces and believe me as a 20 year old in college thats the last thing i... READ MORE

I am 25 years old. I had braces once when I was 12 for about a year just to fix crookedness. None of my childhood dentists/orthodontists mentioned anything unusual about my bite. They always told me I had a beautiful smile and that I was lucky to not have braces on for as long as most patients... READ MORE

I had an under bite since I was little, it was inherited from my dads side. It never really bothered me as much until I became aware of what I really looked like! That may sound weird, because how can a person not know how they look right. Well it was exactly how it sounds, I didn't really pay... READ MORE

Hey guys, 4 years ago I tore the the side of my jaw, I felt extreme pain and my jaw simply hung off-center. I went to the dentist and he said surgery was only necessary in severe cases and gave me a mouthguard which didn't work. Over the 4 years my jaw, facial muscles, smile .etc has become... READ MORE

I had double jaw surgery and genioplasty just over 4 weeks ago and the results have been absolutely devastating. I had a SARPE (palatal expansion) two years ago that went fine so my surgeon assured my the risks with this surgery would also be low. My surgery ended up taking 12 hours, I needed... READ MORE

I have mid-face deficiency, and I want to have maxilla expansion surgery asap to fix this and to provide me with more cheek projection. I'm am also hoping this will fix some of the asymmetry in my face, provide more support for my eyes and lips and balance out my features and improve my side... READ MORE

I already had braces before and my upper and lower teeth were hitting each other but now it is not and my orthodontist said I need jaw surgery? I am 20 years old now and stopped growing. I was told before braces that the rubber band would fix my bite and it did, and now it is not. I think... READ MORE

I live in Norway, Europe and I will turn 18 soon. I used to have a 9 mm overbite. I've had braces. In order to get them my dentist pulled out two teeth from my upper and two from my lower jaw. He pulled both my lower and upper jaw backwards to fix the overbite. Now I have a recessed jaw, a... READ MORE

I had braces for years growing up, but it never really fixed my bite. After finishing braces for the last time in high school, I wore a retainer that had my lateral incisors on it (since I'm missing mine). I continued to wear the fake laterals on a flipper through college. It was great looking... READ MORE

I have always been unhappy with my appearance to such a degree that I would say it has seriously impacted on my life. My mouth closes at rest but only for a few seconds before it starts to ache. I have a very long face and no top lip. Throughout my life I have had hideous comments said to me... READ MORE

I'm 23 years old and since about the age of 16 my jaw has started changing dramatically. My top and bottom jaw have both 'sunk' inwards, when I don't smile it's much less obvious but when I do smile my chin comes up and my nose hangs down making me look like a witch. My surgeon wants to bring my... READ MORE

Hello, I've been looking on this site for advice and experiences of jaw surgery, and I was hoping to get some advice before I agree to it myself. I'm 22 and I have always had issues with my teeth/jaw, my lower jaw is set further back than my top one creating the appearance of no chin as well as... READ MORE

I have a 'deficient maxilla' or 'maxillary deficiency'. My bite was corrected in adolescence but the imbalance in my jaws is not aesthetically pleasing. I've always been very self conscious about my smile and about my profile. My lower jaw is very prominent and I've developed some habits whereby... READ MORE

I'm truly shocked and disappointed that he would treat a patient that way. I wished he would have followed up with me. Told me what to expect. Got me in for more check ups. Everyone ( professional) I talked to said that was one of the worst breaks they had seen in a while or ever. If you are... READ MORE
