Braces and orthognathic surgery to mitigate severe obstructive sleep apnea. (a.k.a. Break my face so I stop snoring.)

My surgeon suggested that rather than an infection, my braces may have just seriously irritated the tissue in my mouth causing swelling. I have noticed that my cheeks can rub a bracket and get raw/sore. Alcohol can make it worse. Well, that's one more reason to give up drinking. 45 more reasons and I'm finished!
