by her orthodontist. This patient was already in braces when Dr. Guyette met her. The patient said it was very uncomfortable to eat and open her mouth and her teeth will not fully close together. Speech was sometimes difficult as well. Dr. Guyette worked closely with the patient’s orthodontist to prepare the patient for the corrective jaw surgery
