Before and Well, Up to Now Pictures
Sorry for screwing with you. I couldn't resist. It's really too early really for before and afters. But with surgery tomorrow, I did want to show some up-to-now shots.
The next two pictures were very early in the process. Notice no bottom braces yet. In the picture below I drew in a yellow line to point out the arch of my front teeth (which I had never noticed.) That (and my overbite) is why my bottom teeth used to rest against the roof of my mouth.
Doesn't it look like I'm biting down on a French Fried Onion?
This is my current set of chompers. You can see that my upper arch is wider (less sort of v-shaped) and that my front bottom teeth are more of a straight line. They no longer touch the roof of my mouth.
Here is a (mildly horrific, fairly insane) picture that I can't believe I am about to post in the inter-web. You can see my overjet (which is going away tomorrow) and my severely deviated septum which will go away in another set of surgeries later (probably) next year.
