In the Beginning....

Jan 26, 2012 - Before braces.

Just got these pics from the orthodontist of my initial consultation.  I highly recommend Dr. Cheek-Hill and her staff they are amazing.  As you can see my teeth alone were not that bad.  My bite is the cause of all my problems. The pictures do not show the severity of my open, cross, overbite. 

 This double jaw surgery will allow me to sleep without my tongue blocking my airway at night (obstructive sleep apnea) and prevent me from putting too much pressure on my back molars.  The fillings you see are from my early childhood and after a couple replacement fillings the teeth are weakened and cracked because of the clinching I unknowingly do when I am stressed and at rest.
