Re: Surgeon Recommendations for the Atlanta Area

That's funny. Dr. Rathburn was so vehemently opposed to jaw surgery that it bordered on unprofessional. Dr. Maron said jaw surgery was necessary from the beginning. Finally when my teeth were scanned and they did a virtual modeling did he finally agree that surgery was needed. I would use another or...

Re: Cannting

I need to ask when I go in for my lower extractions. I was kind of caught off guard by his reply and just went with it. Now I'm really questioning why if my upper jaw is canted and asymmetric why he wouldn't do that too since it must affect my bite.

Intro

Hi All. I just got word for my oral surgeon that orthognathic surgery is in my future. I have an overjet of 11 mm once the crowding in my lower jaw is removed. I'll have two lower bicuspids removed and IPR on the upper jaw. The current plan is to do lower jaw surgery though it may be possible that t...
