Chinderella – it’s an orthognathic fairytale, you see.

Blogfolks, hello! We all know that when it comes to orthognathic blogging, surgery and the subsequent recovery are really it; after that, it’s just gravy. I do like gravy, dammit, but still.

No more tales of vomiting blood! Gone are the days of incessant nosebleeds, the nights of dreaming about being beheaded! What a downer. Soon I’ll revert back to minute details of adjusted wires, one more, one less bracket, which rubber bands are in fashion this autumn and how should I wear them, and will I get debanded for Christmas? After all this excitement, I’m not sure I’ll be able to stand it. Of course, there will be the occasional anecdote about my orthodentist’s sadistic side, and I’m sure I’ll have things to report about teaching teenagers who think it’s funny that I have a mouthful of rubberbands. (the first one who sniggers gets a detention). What is your point Chinders, I hear you mutter, slightly hurt, are you going to bail now? Shame, your before/after pictures were entertaining. Especially the before ones. Nah, it’s not over yet. I’m following other people’s progress with great interest and not a little amount of sympathy. And I’m sure that when I get back to work i’ll have plenty more to report about people’s reactions; and that, bloggers, if i’ve got their measure right, is worth a whole blog in itself.

Be well, happy chewing, and thank you for stopping by!



  1. Yes…. I have been thinking a lot lately about meeting all of my new twerps that I’ll be teaching next week, and I have braces. Argh. So much to explain.

    PS. Laughed out loud with the pulling your pants down at parties and kissing strangers 🙂 Glad you’re doing well.
