Life Is Short, The Orthognathic Surgery Was Worth It.
I have had a bad underbite since I was a kid and it has caused extensive issues including TMJ, Grinding Of My Teeth, Speech Issues, Chewing, Etc. My orthodontist decided to wait until my jaw stopped growing completely before treating me with orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. I'm glad he did, because my jaw grew even more when I was 28! Anyhow I had braces on top and bottom for about a year and then had orthognathic surgery, and then braces for another 4 months. I am very happy with the results and what a difference a good bite makes in life. I am just thankful that I found a good team. If you are considering getting this done, I highly recommend it. The recovery is such a small portion of your life and then you have the rest of your life to enjoy a functional bite and cosmetically beautiful smile.
