Re: Desperately seeking emotional support

tbh all I am hoping after getting the surgery is to feel less self-conscious physically. but who knows how I'm going to feel afterwards. I might end up feeling worse for all I know like feeling more self conscious than I am now. but thats the risk I'm getting myself into by getting surgery and I won...

Re: personal loan for jaw surgery? other finance options?

Yep, you're definitely better off getting an insurance plan that will cover this for you. What are your symptoms? Do you have bite issues? Sleep apnea? Those seem to be the most common reasons for insurance approval on here. my bite and airway is fine. ive had a few consultations where i had to tak...

Re: Desperately seeking emotional support

Just wanted to give an update on my situation--and, maybe, vent a little. Also, I want to thank everyone who had responded to this post because I haven't done so - yikes, three years late. So its 2013 now, and I'm almost turning 25; nothing much has changed since I first made this post in 2010. The ...

Other CA Surgeons Who Does Counter-Clockwise Rotation?

Does anyone know if there are any other surgeons in California (besides Arnett/Gunson) that performs the "counter-clockwise rotation" technique? Any input would be appreciated.

Re: Anterior open bite has ruined my social life....

Hi yeahyeahyeah, I can relate to the way you feel too. A huge (social) problem for me is that I'm so ("physically") uncomfortable with myself that it makes it difficult for me to be comfortable around other people; then I just become awkward. And a lot of it is due to being self-conscious about my a...

Re: Blue Shield CA-HMO Surgeon Recommendations?

lexchomp, All I know is that my parents will be switching into a PPO plan as HMO will not cover out-of-network surgeries. My dad's medical insurance changes every year I believe as his employer offers different health insurance companies every time enrollment comes around; so I can't tell you what c...

Lip incompetence and nasal breathing

Now, this may sound silly but its something that I constantly wonder about: I have a convex facial profile with an obtuse chin (literally), protruding upper lip, and lip incompetence (the closest example I could find is this: http://www.ispub.com/journal/the-internet-journal-of-anesthesiology/volume...

Re: Blue Shield CA-HMO Surgeon Recommendations?

Hi Lyddy, Currently, I'm anticipating to undergo surgery with Dr. Gunson - in Santa Barbara, but as you may know (or read in this forum), he's pricy. But he's out-of-network of course and so my parents will most likely switch insurance companies when open enrollment comes around in April 2012 to see...

Shouldn't 'centric occlusion' occur while jaw is relaxed?

What is an Ideal bite? It is the type of bite we refer to as a “minimal stress, minimal adaptation, least destructive” type of bite. It occurs when your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is seated fully into the socket (fossa), in a comfortable, relaxed position and when the muscles are relaxed – all o...
