    Default Brace/Openbite

    I have recently had braces applied to my top set of teeth to try and correct an open bite. I have been told that I will probably have to undergo surgery which will involve removing part of the bone in my upper jaw and reconnecting it with pins and plates. I have only recently (the past 2 years) suffered with an open bite, so my dentist (not maxillofacial surgeon) thinks the problem is connected to cartliage in my temporomandibular joint. I am bit concerned with having the surgery on my top jaw as it sounds and looks horrendous. I am not concerned with the option of having my lower jaw repositioned if this could correct the problem. Any comments would be appreciated.
