Dentist Visit

My dentist appointment went very well. I was surprised that I did not have any cavities after having the palate splint for six weeks. It was so hard to clean my teeth during that time. I was sure a cavity probably got in there. lol. He said that I had very little plaque and everything looked great.

He said I was still in cross-bite but he thinks the orthodontics should be able to correct that. I sure hope so!!!

All in all, everything is going well. I will see the surgeon at the end of the month.

Blessings to you all.

Second Surgery

Hello All,
This picture is of me and my beautiful daughter in Charlotte NC going to see the Phantom of the Opera. It was great!

I had a visit to the orthodontist last Friday. He first said I still had some swelling in my cheeks and lower jaw, which I was happy to hear because I am hoping to see more cheekbone in the future. While I was happy with that comment he breaks the other news. He said it was too soon to tell, but I may be better off with the second surgery. : (

While they were changing my bands, my mouth had to stay open longer than normal and my lower jaw started hurting. With my bad news and the pain in my lower jaw, the tears started to stream down the side of my face.

My doctor came over and wiped my eyes and the lady started saying she didn't mean to hurt me and he said to her that I was just worried. He was absolutely right!

Well, everything else is going well. I am eating much better now and the swelling is going away. It is definitely a day-by day-process. I am happy with the results thus far. I still have an underbite, but the space in the back of my teeth is looking better. I will see the surgeon at the end of the month. I will let you know how it turns out.

Hope you all are doing well. Blessings!!! : )
