This isn't the right place, but don't know where would be - my daughter wants to get her jaw broken, then put back differently.
She has an "
open bite," which makes it a strain to completely put her lips together. She also mouth-breathes too much, esp. when she's sleeping. This isn't good for her overall health. She also wants it done for cosmetic reasons, not liking the way her jaw slopes inward. The orthodontist tried to talk us into this 4 years ago, when she was about
to get her braces off, but of course at that point she just wanted them off & couldn't focus on it. My husband said, "That's ridiculous! No way!" So I figured fine, who am I to make a big deal about
Now she's 20, and pushing for this. She and I are talking to the orthodontist this afternoon. I'm dreading it. Does anyone know anything about this type of surgery?
