3 Things to Consider Before Getting Adult Braces or Jaw Surgery

Hi there! If you came across my blog because you’re considering getting adult braces or jaw surgery, then congratulations! I hope this information helps you!

 

When I considered starting my jaw surgery journey a few years back, I didn’t know where to start. I only found graphic, disturbing videos on YouTube, and it almost talked me out of getting the surgery. It’s been my mission ever since to help other people find honest, clear-cut (non-graphic) support when it comes to deciding if adult braces and/or jaw surgery is right for them.

 

Here is a video I recently made about the 3 things you should consider before getting adult braces or jaw surgery. Check it out below:

 

 

What are some of the questions you have about adult braces or your jaw surgery journey? For more medical questions, contact your orthodontist or oral surgeon. If you want help/advice on what to eat pre- and post-op, or why I chose to get my jaw surgery done, contact me and we’ll talk!

My Adult Braces Jaw Surgery Story

A lot of traffic for my blog comes from those of you who are considering getting jaw surgery. To you I say: “hello! Welcome!” 🙂

 

Getting jaw surgery was one of the scariest decisions I had to make. But if I had to do it again, I really would. In this video I lay out:

  • How many times I actually had braces
  • Why I needed jaw surgery
  • What made me decide to do jaw surgery
  • How long the process took, overall

I hope it helps you! Check it out here:

Announcing….a Jaw Surgery SUPPORT GROUP!?

Okay, so this idea came to me awhile back and I’ve been itching to do something about it. I think it would be so beneficial to start a support group for those who are getting jaw surgery (or just have adult braces)!

 

Want to hear more? Check out my YouTube video here:

I hope to see you there- let’s smile onward!

Stay Tuned…..for a jaw surgery e-book!

So this morning I’ve been working on an idea that (I hope) will help a lot of people….and that’s a jaw surgery e-book!!

Lately I’ve been getting at LEAST one request a day for guidance when it comes to their jaw surgery….while I’m not an oral surgeon (and I never claim to be!), I know how lonely it can feel during the jaw surgery process. It’s so nice to know someone who’s considering getting a surgery that, essentially, changes your face!

[People think that it’s a cosmetic surgery, but 99.9% of the time it’s very health-related (chronic pain, TMJ, headaches, etc.).]

Anyways, I’m looking through my pictures for the e-book and while I can’t spill the beans on too much right now, I’ll share a side-by-side that I put together. Crazy, right?
Now I hope I can continue to be a voice of support for others across the country who are considering doing the same.

Stay tuned!
