Meet Our Facial Reconstruction Program Recipient, Natalie Taylor!
Natalie Tells Us About Her Oral Health:
I have an underbite and side bite that I have always hated. It makes eating difficult because only three molars touch. Because of this, food isn’t properly digested, and I have frequent tummy problems. I would LOVE to have this life-changing surgery.
Natalie Tells Us Why Restoring Her Oral Function and Facial Aesthetics Is Important to Her:
Restoring my oral function and aesthetics is very important to me! I have always hated my underbite and how it makes me look. I am extremely self-conscious of it. It makes me say my ‘s’ funny and causes issues with eating. I hate side profile pics of myself and dislike being in pictures in general because of how I look. I also hate how often I’m in pain due to my food not being chewed properly. In the past few years, my bite has continued to shift (for the worse), and my top canines have begun hitting my lower teeth causing pain. Only three molars touch, so my food is never chewed well enough, which causes painful tummy problems.
Natalie Tells Us Why She Thinks She Is a Good Candidate for the Facial Reconstruction Program:
Absolutely! I will do anything you ask me to do! This is something I have wanted my whole life!!! I am so tired of being self-conscious of my own face. I am ready to shine!
