So i am 32 turning 33 in 9 days and i have decided to start the process as i have at type 3 malocclussion and hate it when i talk to people and they stare straight into my mouth, with age i have become very self conscious about it. i wanted to have this done at a young age already but my parents thought i was pretty enough as all parents do, but i knew they could not afford it! So i worked hard, studied hard but i knew i wouldn;t be able to afford the surgery costs. now i am of age where i think i can afford some of the expenses and have started the process. 2 weeks ago i did my scans etc and on Wednesday i will be going to my orthodontist to discuss his plans and then i'll be off the surgeon to discuss his plans too.
So i was told that i would need a year of braces and then the surgery and i love this website as people young and old are telling me about there experiences which is so motivating as even my closest friends think i'm crazy.... but they have shiniest whitest smiles and i just feel inadequate because they do not understand what i feel...So will keep you updated to my progress...bit scared but i hear that adult orthodontics are climbing the rankings of being cool, and i cannot wait to get get them on, then at least i know that i am actually doing this now and there's no turning back, cause my ortho told me my bite will become worse although the teeth will become straighter....VERY NERVOUS!!
