Update from the doc

I went to go see Dr. Q (oral surgeon) yesterday. I feel so much better (unless what he told me is a bunch of crap). Apparently, I will not have to have a bite splint afterwards which makes me very happy. I've read enough horror stories in all these blogs to know that I definately did not want to have to do that. I won't have my teeth banded together either. He said only 2-4 bands would be in and I can handle that. The bad part is that he thinks that it will take a year in braces before my teeth are lined up for surgery. Geez, I'll be requesting the heavy duty wire the next time I go to the orthodontist! I was really hoping that we could do this surgery thing next summer so that I'd be healed by the fall. Maybe Dr. Kunik (ortho) can make that happen.
