Hey! I'm still waiting for my orthodontist's office to mail me, I'm going in again on Thursday so I'll ask again then. I have some discolouration from the braces that needs addressing, so I have a few more follow up appointments.

Movements in mm?  Sorry if I missed it.

If I remember correctly, it was 5mm lower forward with downward rotation, and upper 3 mm forward and down. :)

How are you getting your braces off so soon? Usually they stay for 6 months after the surgery, but I guess your bite was solid basically straight away.

Hi CCW! I had my braces on for quite a while pre-surgery, and my teeth moved really fast! 6 months on there's been no issues. I think my fast recovery and minimal swelling helped a lot! ^_^
