Re: Sad Hours :(

Your life isn’t over, regardless you’ll have to wait until your 18 for surgery. So possibly you could begin preliminary orthodontia work now. Keep in mind people will wear braces usually for a year.

I could be wrong, but most jaw surgeons will tell you to wait until you are 20 so that they know your jaw and bone is fully formed in order to have permanent results without risking your jaw growing back into its old state. At 16 I believe you are still growing.

Re: How often post-op see surgeon?

Thanks for the replies, the reason I ask is because I had a X-ray done literally the next morning after the surgery, and then one week later (2 weeks) I just had my surgeon tell me to open my mouth and bite into the splint and telI me I could take my splint out by the 4th week. I was rushed because ...

Re: Surgery in January?

its funny you are going under the knife the same day i'm getting my splint taken out. as for difficulty level, i would say that if you compared it to wisdom teeth removal, the wisdom teeth removal is extreme pain, over a shorter period of time like a month. jaw surgery is a delayed release of that p...
