Today I had probably the first of many people saying 'But there's nothing wrong with your teeth'! I was talking to my friend about my upcoming braces, and her friend said 'Have you got braces?' and I said 'No but I'll be getting them soon' and she was like 'Why? You're teeth are perfectly straight!' I guess I'm going to get this a lot seeing as my teeth are actually straight...they just have a massive overbite too! I don't really know this girl so I just said 'Yeah but I still have an overbite so I'm getting that sorted out' and that was all I needed to say! So I think that will just be my response to anybody who asks once I've got the braces on...no need to go into all this surgery malarkey if I don't need to!
Hi I'm Sarah, I'm 23 and I'm planning to undergo lower and upper jaw surgery to correct my overbite and gummy smile. I was offered but declined this surgery when I was a teenager, but have now decided to go ahead with the procedure. When making this decision I found it really helpful to read other blogs, and hope that documenting my surgery will help others!
