Im in a situation that half of my upper and lower jaw shifted and made it that my right upper jaw to shift in and right lower jaw is outter...and that made my set of teeth on the right side to be shifted in.
Dentist have told me that doing braces won't help...but told me that if it didn't affect my speech or eating then it's fine.
But I just find that my smile seems "distorted"
Anyone can share the effects of after jaw surgery?
Orthognathic surgery cost depends on the impediments, facial deformities, orthodontist and country where you want to complete your surgery. Its cost usually varies from $20,000 - $40,000 that includes beginning checkups, medical charges and fees. It also depends on the equipments that have been used. http://www.orthognathicsurgeryhelp.com
Hi all, this thread has been very informative! I'll be going for my consultation with Dr Wu Loo Cheng from Khoo Teck Puat this coming week and fingers crossed it'll be uneventful . I've seen Dr Ho's name appear quite a number of times here also and I might go check him out. If all goes well I'll be going for my op in Sept. Anyone recently did this op?
I was told by my dentist consider this surgery because after taking out my braces last year realise my jaw wasn't align properly and also i had protruding bones (i think) out of my gums (can see them and feel them) and he ask me to shave that one down too. i'm very risk adverse lar and at that moment i was just happy teeth finally straight for soon to be wedding. but ever since then i haven't felt quite right with my mouth. my brother also got the same problem. htb ask me to go for a second opinion after the wedding but i'm worried about the down time. how long do you usually have to be out with mc for recovery? will go check the few names provided here out. thanks for the information!
ive got friends who went through braces without surgery despite their jaw discrepancies. i went through 2 times of braces treatment with 2 different specialist. i went through the 2nd time just for my wedding! i also saw how my dentist treated some severe cases without surgery. i think its impt that you go for a few opinions before deciding as it is considered a major surgery. some experienced braces specialist can help camouflage the look without surgery.
