Yes, I am at last feeling relaxed and happy with this new mouth. The pain in my jaw joint is 99.9% gone. My physio told me to up my dose of nortryptiline and the night pain has disappeared accordingly. My jaw mobility is awesome! Well, in comparison with what it was. I can jut my lower teeth out beyond my uppers, and can open 33mm (and have further to go yet, I know). I can also move my lower jaw out to both sides.
My top teeth haven't moved over to the centre much but then it's only been about 3 weeks since the spring's been in. I've realised that for proper chewing it'll have to happen. I can't slide my lower jaw over to the right with the molars together (ie chew to that side) because the canines bang into each other. They in fact need to slide over each other but can't because they're not positioned correctly in relation to each other. My ortho was talking about this from straight after the surgery and I didn't know why he kept going on about it. Now I am functioning normally again I realise why.
