Thanks for the reply ortho777,
This is strange for me because I have not had any facial/jaw growth since I went through puberty when I was 13/14. My teeth and face shape have always been fine (virtually the same) ever since now.
If I am being really honest with you ortho777, I don't like the effects of what I believe my face/jaw is going through at the moment and liked the way I looked prior to all this (say about may before all this was happening).
I really want to correct the jaw differences (if I've had any) and bring back my old/normal jaw shape. But this "surgery" alternative worries me, my orthodontist mentioned something about drilling holes somewhere, which tbh with you scares me. I'm scared of my orthodontist, I'm afraid he'll do what he best places and I'll end with some new face shape I totally hate.
Isn't there anyway you can prevent any of this? I mean I've heard braces can alter the shape of your face and jaw, so if I were to align my teeth correctly back exactly the way they were, would this also accomodate a change in face shape/jawline and maybe go back to the way I used to look?
