Getting ready

After being in braces for a year, it’s time to correct my anterior open bite with jaw surgery (Lefort 1 Osteomoty)

Here’s Day -365, which was on June 16th, 2013. I just got the braces put on.

Day -365

Here’s October 9th, 2014, getting my surgical lugs on. Usually they are rubber, but going into surgery they have to be metal.

it’s really not that bad

Look at how much my teeth came together! But there’s still work to be done to get them safely down to my bottom teeth.

I’m scheduled in at 7:30 tomorrow for surgery. Nervous, for what I feel is no reason. But my brain still thinks I should panic. I mentally prepared for all of this, and I’m somewhat excited just to get it over with.
