I am Urtė Jonaitytė, an eighteen-year-old schoolgirl.

We consulted an orthodontist, a facial and maxillofacial surgeon, due to the excessive growth of the lower jaw, there was a small chance that we would be able to slow it down by rotating micro-implants and wearing gummies, unfortunately, it did not help.

It was diagnosed that both jaws require surgery. If the operation is not performed, the situation will only worsen in the future due to an incorrect bite, teeth decay, difficulty breathing through the nose, poor chewing of food, etc.

Since the discrepancies of the jaws are large, surgery is the only solution.

I am not afraid of the duration of the operation, nor the preparation time (preparations for the operation with braces will last about two years), nor the postoperative period, the only thing that scares me and makes me doubt whether I will be able to achieve the goal is the high cost of the operation.

After learning about the activities of the Face Foundation, I asked for help, I believe that with the help of the Face Foundation and caring people, my problem will be solved and I will have a correct bite and straight teeth, so that I can finally smile widely to the world!
