Considering surgery

I've had an overbite and been aware of it for all my life, but over the couple years I've really grown to hate it and have been thinking about getting it corrected.

Re: First Day in Braces

I've definitely used my fair share of wax... I am almost completely out of the stuff my ortho gave me. I went and bought some back up because the molar bands are ripping my check and tongue on the left side. Basically just the molar bands are bothering me now...

Re: How much did you guys pay for your braces?

Full ceramic uppers and bottoms at $4,700. My insurance covers $1,500, so my out of pocket is $3,200 (as long as I keep my insurance). I'm considering lower jaw surgery to correct my overbite, so as long as my insurance approves the procedure, I'll be looking at an additional max of $5,000.

I'm also super surprised because barely anyone has noticed them. I had to point them out to my friend today (I was pretty sure he would have noticed right away).

I'm definitely buying the water pik...Today...lol

First Day in Braces

I've been thinking about correcting my overbite for a year or two now. I've always known about my overbite, but other than a few instances as kid, it never really bothered me. About three years ago, it just dawned on me how noticeable it is and how it actually looks. Recently, I did some consultatio...
