Is this normal?

Hey guys,

So the last week I've noticed that my bite is really close to literally just hitting. Post op I had an overjet but now I don't even have a mm of extra space. I've been wearing my retainers at night but I wake up and my bite is super tight. I may have to call my ortho regarding this. Just a mini panic here.

I was really more worried about the open bite coming back but it feels like my muscles are pulling my bite back into an underbite.

Maybe I'm just over reacting. I'll book in an appointment with my massage therapist, maybe my facial muscles are just tense.

Anyway otherwise life is good. Heading back to Toronto after being in Montreal with the bestie.
She's moving back so we packed stuff and caught up on life. We went to an outdoor electronic music party which was pretty cool except we got eaten alive by all the bugs.

I always get a kick out of the stop signs in quebec. It's Terra backwards. I still remember when we went to Ottawa 10 years ago and the stop signs said Stop Arret so we would say "Pots Terra"

Drinking in the day. I like the massive amounts of wine people drink in this province. 

This was a separate stage but if you were drunk enough and could see this guys dance moves. 

We were forced to drink from the bottle when some random guy thought he could pick me up by bumping his booty into me. This didn't work and we lost our cups :( Losers

I have these two massive bruises and I have no idea where they came from. Was before the festival though. 

I also have this massive bite on my arm, still not sure what this was from

<3 Terra


  1. You're too cute!

    I hope your bite is totally normal and everything gets figured out!

  2. I just wanted to let you know that you're super pretty- before and after your surgery.
    I've been reading back in your blog about your experience as I am going to be going through jaw surgery 2 weeks from today myself. And doing so has helped me feel way more informed and less nervous about it. :)

  3. You look amazing! I have been reading a ton of blogs the last few days as like Britney I am scheduled for double jaw surgery July 16th, and well I am getting super nervous. Reading your blog is helping me feel a little more relaxed about it. : ) Thank you for blogging your experience so people like us can get some comfort in knowing we are not alone! Hope your bite and everything is okay, and what you are experience is not a big deal!

  4. Hi Terra! It's been about 8 months since I've had my braces off now and I still feel like my bite isn't fully settled. I didn't wear retainers as much as I probably should have at the beginning and the underbite still feels like it's fighting back at times. My teeth seem to have tilted forward a bit to compensate for this feeling... I think it's mostly normal but I have an appointment with my ortho soon and I will ask.
