    I'm due to have an operation on my lower jaw. They put braces on me when I was 16-18 to see if the braces helped which it didn't. I am now 21 and they have put braces on me again. But I'm so conscious of my jaw and Would like to know how long I have to wait for my operation. I have a side bite which is very noticeable and I don't want to leave the house. Will they do my operation sooner? I won't care if I have to have my braces on for longer after I just want it done.
    If someone could give me advice that would be great Thankyou!

    I am sure by now that you have already done so, but I would suggest simply giving your doctor, or other medical contact, a quick call to enquire about this. Nobody here would be able to tell you exactly how long the wait will be or whether or not they could bring the operation forward.

    Best of luck!
