Very sorry to hear how unhappy you are. I hope you get better answers. Let us know how you are doing. I'm curious to know what happens since we both had an open bite. You had mention before how your Ortho was unhappy after the surgery with how your back bite was open. This is the same with me but I ...

Hi, I don't sleep on my stomach but love sleeping on my side. I have that problem with my lower jaw it aches/hurts when I sleep on my side. Sometimes I can sleep on my side if I have the presure of my face just right. But for the most part I have to sleep on my back. I had upper & lower Jaw surgery....

ORTHO12 - I wish you the best of luck with the new Ortho & Surgeon. Hopefully things will work out better for you this time. I do think that it's horrible that other options were not told to you. Especially with only a 1 mm open bite that seems like something that would have been fixed with braces &...

ORTHO12 - I'm really surprised they did surgery for only a 1 mm openbite. I would think they would try to correct it with just braces.

I have all 4 of my wisdom teeth and was told they would not be a problem that they did not need to come out. So here I am after the surgery with all my wisdom teeth.

I did ask if one or two would need to come out later could they cause any problems like my Jaw moving was told no.

Dr. Felice O'Ryan is the best!! She did my surgury at the Oakland Kaiser I live 40 minutes from there. Dr. O'Ryan is very easy to talk to, answers your e-mails, and I'm very happy with how she moved both Jaws and my sliding Genio. She and my Ortho worked together in the pass so this was a bonus to m...

I agree with everything Sauerkraut said. You just might need some more time and to remember what it was that you really wanted.

I do have to say I am amazed on how fast TAD's worked for you. Wow, and without the surgery. I had the double Jaw surgery and it is a big deal with a long recovery.
