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

Hi everybody! I had braces as long as I can remember. The orthodontist did everything to fix my underbite without surgery. I got my braces off 1 year ago but I don't know if I am happy with the results or not. I am 20 years old. My teeth are ok and nobody ever did recognize that I have an... READ MORE

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

I was first referred to a dental hospital when I was about 14. But my story started back at primary school, when my milk teeth started to fall out and my "adult" teeth came through. A school dentist came in when I was about 7. I always remember she did a plaque test with a little red tablet in... READ MORE

Here goes, have had a a long chin and disproportionately aligned jaws all my life. Have hated it ,and I mean hated it all my life. Only those reading this in my position would understand, and I know there r lots of us out there. Why now u might ask? Just looked at it on internet last year and... READ MORE

. I just got braces a few months ago. I have a 6mm underbite. And they are talking about doing a double jaw. Moving 3mm forward on upper and 3mm backward on lower. While the main reason I am doing this is for practical reasons like eating and chewing. Also of course concerned about looks. Will... READ MORE

It all started with a Google search term "Lower jaw forward" after taking several photos and wondering why my face appeared weird. I've had an underbite (mandibular prognathism) since my teenage years but didn't notice until my early 20s. Friends occasionally made (and still make) funny remarks... READ MORE

Hello, sorry for my poor English. I decided to start my journey on jaw surgery last May 2014. I worked hard to save for my braces and to pay all the x-rays needed. I've done a little bit of research before about jaw surgery so I wasn't surprised when my Ortho told me that my gummy smile is due... 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 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 have an overbite and had braces with plan to undergo orthgnatic surgery in my 20s-mid braces, my insurance company changed their policy and didnt cover the insurance-I had no money to pay out of pocket so off the braces went and soon my teeth went back to their old misalligned positions AND my...

Journey started a couple months ago when I finally got to go to the dentist for the first time in 20 years. I went in for a cleaning and to check if I had any cavities. Luckily I only had one cavity but I was more concerned with my lock jaw and popping/clicking my jaw was making. The pain was... READ MORE

Like others on this site, I joined out of the curiosity factor to learn more about my upcoming jaw surgery and did not plan on providing my own story. However, I've learned so much over the past few months that I hope my journey will help others, in addition to hopefully learning more myself as... READ MORE

I was really lucky to have met Dr. Antipov. It took me almost 2.5 years to find the right surgeon. After meeting him, i realized that this is the guy i want to trust work on my face. First of all, he was one of the three surgeons, who told me that i'd only have to get my upper jaw done only... READ MORE

On 12/8/2015, I have corrective jaw surgery to aligned lower jaw and fix under and cross bite. I am POD#1 as I write this. Currently no jaw pain, no lower face numbness and no bruising. I do have more swelling today which I expect to peak on POD2 and 3. Even with the swelling, I am pleased... 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 got Upper Jaw Sugery Lefort I 5mm advancement for Underbite and it's been about 3 weeks after the surgery and I'm wondering if a Lefort I was the right choice for me I feel like i ended up looking much less attractive and chimp like. I also do not think the remaining swelling will make much... READ MORE

I have always considered myself unnattractive, particularly my lips and jaw which I thought were masculine. I also noticed from photos and corner mirrors that my face was very asymetrical. I initially approached my orthodontist to correct a turned lateral incisor, I then found out that I had a... READ MORE

Hi All, Has anyone had any experience with SARME/SARPE or double jaw surgery? I had SARME surgery on the 21st April 2015 to widen my upper jaw, and then I've got double jaw surgery hopefully in 2016 to put my lower jow backwards and upper jaw forwards to transform my face for the better. Does... READ MORE

I had an underbite from the age of 10. Because my teeth were straight and healthy, the dentist didn't pick up on it until my mum pointed it out to him. 4 years later, they gave me braces to start moving my teeth into position for surgery. They needed to make gaps for the brackets and elastics... READ MORE
