Good news! Dr. Q was "amazed" at how much my teeth have moved. I really wish I had taken pics when I first got my braces on, but oh well. He couldn't believe that so much has happened in three months. I can, for as much as they hurt, they had better be movin'! So, apparently, they have moved sooo much, that he thinks that I might not have to have lower jaw surgery done at all. I would still have to have my chin moved over since it doesn't quite line up in the middle. If I could do without the extra cuts on the bottom, I'm all for it! Less is definitely better in this circumstance. He said that it is totally feasible for us to go ahead and plan on surgery mid-summer which is perfect. I finally graduate on May 9th, and then on to my new face! He told me that the crowding on the bottom is what caused my teeth not to fit together, but now that they are almost straight, it is much better. I will still have to have all the junk done to my top jaw, but recovery should go much smoother. We'll make that final determination the next time I see him which is in March.
