Cool

littlebrace,

I'm glad to hear that you're doing well. I hope your surgery goes well for you. How's school going this year? Well, don't be such a stranger...check in once in awhile!
Take Care,
Cheryl

Hi littlebrace:
I did some research on this orthognatic surgery. It sounds pretty serious. I pray that you have done your research on it as well and that all goes well for you.

Just out of curiousity, why are most against orthognathic surgery? Doesn't it just involve cutting into the gums and not the jaw itself? Sorry if this is a lame question.

I have a really bad open bite which is why I need this type of surgery. And I'm pretty sure they break the jaw when they do it. or atleast I know they do when they do the surgery on the lower jaw, however I am only having it done on the upper jaw so I'm not positive but I will find out on the 29th when I go see my oral surgeon

sorry If you answered this one already but
have you tried other conservative treatments?
And you mentioned an open bite , can not braces or
crowns help this problem?

How big is your open bite (in mm)? How long have you had it?
