I had been told all my life to have jaw surgery. I was seriously considering it when I had an orthodontist ask me to get an MRI. the results of which showed degeneration of my TMJ. I was told by one surgeon NOT to have surgery. In addition I had an orthodontist make me an appliance to straighten bottom teeth. He filed my upper and lower front teeth. What he did not tell me is that he would have to move upper teeth 1-1.5mm. I stopped treatment because this was not acceptable. Now my teeth have moved NOT under guidance of orthodontist. I don't know what to do???
