0 End Teeth Movements, Add Surgical Hooks

Big Milestone -- my pre-surgery braces are complete, and dental impressions are ready for pick up.

I can't close my mouth completely anymore, and my lower jaw asymmetry shows clear as day.  My ugly face is shown below for your own torture. Yes that's my Titanic sinkable bath toy up top. It even snaps in 2 after sinking to a point.

The rubber bands were removed, and steel wires were put in place, with hooks attached every few teeth. These will be used to wire my mouth shut for the surgery, and for some time after. I get the full details from my surgeon at tomorrow's appointment. Should be a very interesting post.
