X-Rays Before and After

Unfortunately some residual swelling is still lingering so I don't have great pictures of myself before and after, however I was able to take some before and after shot of my x-rays.  The picture on the top is before, and the lower is after surgery.  You can see the plates and screws that will remain in my lower jaw and the splits that were cut into the bone.  It is amazing to me how a slight change can make such a difference in my bite.   The 5mm+ overbite that I had prior to surgery is a thing of the past.

I'm still recovering and relearning how to talk, eat and smile.  Overall I am really happy with the result and looking forward to finishing up this two year long process.  

Here is a close up of my left jaw.
