8 January 2011

Nearly 3 years ago, I was sitting in Dr Chamberland’s consultation chair for the first time with my three broken teeth and my damaged foot. I had had a bicycle accident and as I had known for a long time that I would need to undergo a jaw surgery, the timing for starting the process was perfect.

At 22 years old, I therefore started an orthodontic treatment prior to the surgery to come 2 years later. Every month, I would sit on the chair and while chatting with my orthodontist’s team, I could see that my teeth were straightening and the surgery was coming. A solid partnership was then created between myself, Dr Chamberland and Dr Robert Paquin, the oral surgeon that would operate on me. Then, last June, the moment came when I had to go to the Hôpital de l’Enfant-Jésus for the famous surgery. I was nervous, but I knew what to expect because of the team of “oral” professionals that supported me. Before even realizing that I was about to have my jaws cut open and repositioned, I was waking up in my hospital room. To my surprise, the pain was totally bearable. (Probably a little bit due to the little red tablets that I was taking every 4 hours!)

Two days later, I was home with my face as round as a balloon and my big syringe to eat liquids. I was then able to eat soft foods after 2 weeks. My face was becoming less swollen as my diet was getting more solid. I was able to return to the office 1 month after my surgery. Today, 6 months after this surgery, I practically have no food restrictions or any other restrictions for that matter. I happily saw my braces finally being removed from my mouth and my jaws becoming more functional than before this whole story began. My face changed with the orthodontic treatment and the surgery, for the better as they tell me!
I am delighted to have made the decision to undertake the orthodontic and surgical treatment.
