The patient has braces on one dental arch. Accumulated amount used: EUR 645.00.

I'm Justin, I'm eighteen years old, I'm a student. As a child, I had neat teeth, and as I grew up, I noticed that my lower jaw was getting longer and bigger than my upper jaw. As the lower jaw expands, the front teeth no longer bite. Over time, gaps appeared between the teeth. I thought that all this could be solved only with the help of braces. After visiting several specialists, they said that only orthognathic jaw surgery could help me. Encouraged, I visited the oral, facial and maxillofacial surgeon Mindaugas Stacevičius. We discussed that I really needed surgery on both jaws. The discrepancies in the jaw are large and braces alone would not help in my situation, I would not be able to achieve a good end result. Orthognathic surgery will be difficult, will last 5-6 hours, will operate on both jaws. But it doesn't scare me. The only reason to doubt is its high price. At the moment, I would not be able to collect such an amount myself, even in a few years (that's how long it will take to prepare for the operation). When I learned about the activities of the face fund, I was happy because with their help and good people, I can fulfill my dream and have a correct bite and straight teeth.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to my treatment.
