2 months and a bit with braces

Here are some pictures of my braces. Enjoy ;)

My lower teeth definitely look straighter but it feels like that gap is never going to close!

New bans and a VERY annoying wire...

I forgot to add this angle before

Sometimes I even think they look cute, am I getting used to them? ;)

Have a lovely weekend! <3

Predicted Profile

Hello everyone!!!

I've been wanting to see these for ages :) Im so happy my surgeon showed me the predicted profile tracings, he says they could still change but for now they'll be:

Upper jaw:

Impacted 3mm in the front and 6mm in the back, moved forward 3mm

Lower jaw:

Moved forward 6mm (I forgot to ask him if it'll be 6mm on both sides)

Genioplasty:

7mm (total lower jaw movement 13mm)



Im so exited! I know the profile tracings are not 100% accurate but Im loving what I see!

What do you guys think? Please be honest :)

AFTER! 



I also had a ortho visit a week ago, he fitted the bands on, I had no idea he was going to do that!! It was a.... uncomfortable surprise :( I couldnt bite down properly for a couple of days but its all settled down now, I'll post some pictures when I get back form the gym. Before I forget: he said I would be ready for surgery in 9-12 months, Im hoping I'll be ready for February.

Have a lovely weekend!

Weak chin model

Hello everyone!

Hope everyone is keeping well specially those of you recovering from your surgery or preparing for it! All my best thoughts go to you!

I have to admit I've become somewhat obsessed with jaws and chins. Im not the only one, right? The point of this post is that I saw this model on TV and she has a weak chin, I think she is beautiful and its making me reconsider genio... what do you guys think? here is a couple of pictures of her.



I have an appointment with my OS next week so I'll ask him about it, he is going to give me the predicted profile tracings! IM SO EXCITED!!!! :)

xx Much love to you all xx
