Thank you everyone for "listening". :lol: I made a decision. I am not having surgery. This ortho told me I needed it before he even took an xray. He said I have an ideal profile and that by breaking my face all the way around the roof of my mouth, and breaking it from the inside corner of my EYE SOC...

OMG, just read your story and I'm in shock that this can happen! You are a trooper, for sticking it out this far. I really hope that someone can sort it out for you, or at the very least tell you why this can't be fixed! Good luck with your treatment, I hope there is an end in sight for you!

Nervous about initial consult tomorrow!

My initial consult with the ortho is tomorrow morning, and I am starting to freak out. I dont know what to expect... and I am really embarrased about my teeth. I can be a big sissy when it comes to the dentist, it is the embarassment combined with a fear of pain. Can anyone tell me what to expect to...

I have been looking around the site for the last few days and I didn't find anyone who's teeth are as crooked and crowded as mine. I havent been to my fir...
