Last official adjustment before surgical hooks

Hey guys,
I went to the ortho today for an adjustment and heres how it went.
My usual ortho Dr G was not in so I saw Dr D. I had to go over some of the issues regarding my bite so we were on the same page. Good news is he agreed that I don't need to wear that stupid elastic. That makes me very very happy.

He said my bite is at 2.5 mm open which is an improvement and that we should be over 3 mm by my next appointment. I'll be going in in 4 weeks time to have the surgical hooks put on. I'll have to wear them for almost 3 weeks before surgery, ughh.

I have all my appointments set up and it looks like sept will be very busy.

I sort of can't believe its actually happening. I was starting to get really scared but now I'm feeling that excitement again. Thanks Nathaniel for that great update. We have the same surgeon and ortho. His surgery was this past friday and everything sounds like it went well. Very reassuring.

Not much is really changing with my teeth but I do feel a lot of pressure today which is good news.

  1. Surgical hooks are like your braces getting braces. They're the barbed wire of orthodontics. My advice: For your first meal, eat spinach. Go to the bathroom mirror and revel in the craziness. It will look like you ate a sea monster without using your hands. Enjoy.
