Hi, I am 52 years old and considering the surgery, so I'm glad yours went well since we're around the same age. I had braces as a teenager and back then to correct my open bite, the orthodontist had me wear an appliance that pushed my chin up and back--my orthodontist today said that likely worsened my jaw problems. My open bite is back, my teeth are crooked again, and I have worsened jaw issues that include the appearance of a double chin, worn teeth, receding gums (I've already had grafts) and TMJ pain. After reading some of the horror stories on here, I was really concerned I woldn't be happy with the results, so thanks for sharing your positive story. How are things going now? Any chance you would post before/after pics? Thanks.
