I had my upper and lower done early February this year 2011. If I would have known the amount of pain and suffering I would not have had it done.
They make it seem like it is no big deal. They didn't tell me that I would be uncomfortable and in pain for a year or so; they told me this on my six week check up. My face gets numb a lot they told me that was normal. You will have to live on advil or aleeve for a long time.
When I went back for my six week check up they told me that there will always be a gap between the teeth and gum that's not how they presented it when I went for the interview. I have to water pick my teeth every time I eat because the food gets under the teeth and causes pain. I have two scars on my upper lip where I guess they tore the skin when they did the surgery. I am not sure what to do about that yet.
I am going to the dermatologists to see what he has to say about it. The teeth look ok but not sure what to do about all the pain and numbing of face. Sometime I get some sharp pains in my face. When I talked to them about all of this they make me feel like what is the big deal but I am miserable all the time can't go anywhere to eat because I need to run home and water pick my teeth.
I would make sure that you look at all options. I am so sorry that I spent all this money to be in so much pain and to be miserable all the time.
