Miss Mature Bones

Oh, you know, just doing some fun, recreational reading this evening and came across THIS delightful piece of information...

"Orthodontic forces move the teeth in the same way for both adults and children, but adult treatment may take longer due to the maturity of the bone."

Thank you, American Association of Orthodontics. Where the hell was this little jewel of info when I signed up for this 'adventure?!' Hope my children's friends don't mind a soccer mom in braces. "No, Joey, you can't have cracker jacks for snacks in this car. You know Mama's dental dilemmas. Pass the pudding!"

Do you think I can get a promotion based on my maturity of bone?
Gross.

Hi! I'm looking forward to reading your blog and hearing about your journey through jaw surgery. There are a bunch of blogs on orthognathic surgery. If you haven't come across them, I can email them to you. They are really interesting. I need upper/lower and am just starting the process. Good luck!!
