Re: Will lower jaw surgery make my chin disappear?

Hi, thank you so much for responding. If I don't have braces on yet, will a jaw surgeon still have a consultation with me?

Will lower jaw surgery make my chin disappear?

Hi everyone, I have a very slight underbite and a crossbite. I am most likely going to get 2 upper bicuspid removed and have lower jaw surgery only. I will be getting the surgery only for functional reasons, but I've been worried that the extraction paired with the lower jaw surgery will make my chi...

Re: Getting braces before seeing a jaw surgeon

Hello, thanks for the replies. I have a slight underbite and crossbite (right side of jaw grew more than left). As far as I know I don't have a narrow palate. My underbite and crossbite are actually not noticeable and my smile looks fine (probably due to teeth compensation). I am fine with the way I...

Re: Unsure on what to do regarding jaw surgery, braces, TMJ

Hi metalmouth, I decided to go with jaw surgery :I I haven't had my braces on yet because I still need to extract two teeth on the top. My TMJ is pretty bad but when I put my bite in the middle, the ache I have around my ear goes away. So I'm hoping that surgery will help with that so I don't have t...

Getting braces before seeing a jaw surgeon

Is it normal to get braces on before seeing a jaw surgeon? My orthodontist said I would have braces on first before seeing a jaw surgeon. I trust this orthodontist and all but the part that scares me is not knowing if I'm going to have only lower jaw surgery or double jaw surgery. My orthodontist is...

Re: Unsure on what to do regarding jaw surgery, braces, TMJ

I'm so sorry for replying so late. Been so busy. But wow, I also have a thyroid disease! It's crazy that we seem to have a lot of weird things in common. I have the opposite of what you have, Grave's hyperthyroidism. I hope all your tests for other autoimmune diseases went/are going well though. It ...

Re: Unsure on what to do regarding jaw surgery, braces, TMJ

yes twins!!! :D Wow! Yes life happens, and it's nice that you're getting full support from your family! For me, I think the delay in getting jaw surgery was because of an autoimmune disease, which I still have, but I feel much better now. That + college made things very difficult, so I just decided ...

Re: Unsure on what to do regarding jaw surgery, braces, TMJ

Hii !!! My orthodontist also said my teeth tipped to compensate! And wow, my tmj issues also started when I was 15. XD Were you hesitant before you made the decision for jaw surgery?

Unsure on what to do regarding jaw surgery, braces, TMJ

Hello to anyone reading this. I'm a 22 year old female who had braces at age 11/12. I had one tooth removed that time. My jaw grew a bit more and I stopped wearing my retainers 4 years ago because they stopped fitting when my wisdom teeth came out. When I was 18, I went to 4 ortho's and 3/4 of them ...
