I am new to the board & wanted to introduce myself.

I am 37 and in consultation for braces followed by surgery on upper & lower jaws due to a class 3.

Have enjoyed reading everyones posts so far and look forward to gaining advice & sharing my experience as things progress.

It's daunting, terrifying and exciting in equal measure!

so, anyway - "hi!" :D :-1

I am also a noob. Going to meet an ortho this week (Wednesday) for a consult, and have another consult in a couple weeks.

I will be heading the surgery route eventually as well. I have a 10mm overjet and was told when I was 9 that I would require surgery.

Good luck to both of you in your journeys, I will look forward to updates from you!

I'm a first time poster as well. Double jaw surgery was recommended to about 6 years ago but I wasn't happy with the orthodontist or surgeon and didn't even proceed with braces (which I wanted/needed for other reasons). Anyway, I'm now almost 30 looking to improve my smile and bite and want second and third opinions about the surgery aspect!

Hi all, another new person on here :) Braces for 2 years then surgery to fix my underbite :) I got told about this from another jaw-surgery friend and hopefully there will be plenty to learn from this :)

Hello everybody.
I am a new user and I am surprised about the surgery options in modern times. Unfortunately I do have An end-to-end bite which is not recognised until my 40s. My former dentist did not believe my story. Now I have well preserved molars but highly eroded incisors. With composites we manage to get a more or less stable situation. When a surgery had been Done in time, my teeth would have been almost perfect...
