i broke my jaw about 3 months ago, had 2 plates installed. was so depressed changed my face, my bite felt awful so alien like, could not sleep at all for weeks also speech my eating and worst of all my smile.
After 3 months i felt like my normal self again, everything started to go back to normal although my cheekbones are a bit uneven so anyone who has this done relax you will be fine.

Now just yesterday i took another blow to the face (not a very hard one) but my bite is completely off again my two left molars are catching before the rest of my teeth and it kills to chew. not much swelling as last time and i can stil speak and open my mouth to an extent, i have been to the hospital twice in two days to have ex rays but they say it is not broken, ( i beg to differ) i have to return to see my specialist tomorrow to see if he can find out whats up and have more ex rays i swear if i have many more of these i am going to turn into one of the xmen!

but to anyone who has been as unfortunate as me to have this done please give me some feedback! my bite is so off i can fit my tounge into the gap of the right side of my teeth when they are closed shut!
