Re: Could tugging on my upper molars after jaw surgery shift the jawbones?

[quote=snapdresser post_id=500879 time=1520905466 user_id=24383] More people than you think mess with it. Whether it’s clenching or chomping down or sleeping on their side or chest, and we all thought we screwed it up. Our surgeons checked our scans and either the union and screws were good or they ...

Re: Could tugging on my upper molars after jaw surgery shift the jawbones?

[quote=snapdresser post_id=500858 time=1520778139 user_id=24383] That anxiety is totally normal during recovery :) [/quote] I know, but I keep doing things that most people wouldn't do after jaw surgery - like tugging on my upper teeth. Initially I don't think about it much but then after realizing ...

Re: Could tugging on my upper molars after jaw surgery shift the jawbones?

[quote=snapdresser post_id=500840 time=1520649801 user_id=24383] Unlikely. Relaaaaax. If anything, the poking and prodding affects the swelling, either positively or negatively. Regardless, it’ll go down over time. [/quote] Thanks. I really hope I didn't ruin anything. I've been so nervous and scare...

Re: Could tugging on my upper molars after jaw surgery shift the jawbones?

[quote=snapdresser post_id=500821 time=1520609972 user_id=24383] I don’t think the union will be complete for another several weeks, at which point they may take another scan to be sure you’re completely healed. There’s not really any point to doing it before then, IMO, unless you badger him for it ...

Re: Could tugging on my upper molars after jaw surgery shift the jawbones?

[quote=snapdresser post_id=500787 time=1520517386 user_id=24383] Your maxilla sections are fixed using titanium plates and screws (or at least the 2 side sections are). Simply tugging on them or accidentally chomping down shouldn’t have any effect. If anything, it could crack the bone around the scr...

Could tugging on my upper molars after jaw surgery shift the jawbones?

Specifically, I had a multi-piece (I believe it was 3 piece) lefort 1 osteotomy advancement for my upper jaw, and bi-sagittal split osteotomy advancement for my lower jaw. This surgery was to correct a huge open bite and jaw asymmetry/canting. I...

My orthodontist said he can refer me to whoever I want from Toronto, and I'm either gonna go with Dr Marco Caminiti or Dr Claudio Tocchio. I've heard that they are the best...
