My name is Adam, I am from a small town in South Africa and I am about to finish high school the end of this year - can’t wait :)
I have an angle class III occlusion. I also have severe maxillary horizontal hypoplasia, as well as mandibular horizontal hypoplasia.
Basically I have a severe underbite and at the moment only 1 set of teeth (my rear left molers) are touching one another.
This makes my biting and chewing force very minimal and makes it VERY difficult for me to eat and bite as my bottom front teeth are nearly 1cm in front of my top teeth.
My treatment plan is as follows: individual arch alignment of the maxillary and the mandible arches with decompensation. Then a Le Fort 1 osteotomy with advancement of the maxilla and a Bilateral Sagittal Split Osteotomy of the mandible with setback.
This is quite a large surgery as they will have to cut my top jaw off from my skull, move it forward and angle it as well as cut a piece out of my bottom jaw to set it back and angle it.
With such a large and precise surgery it is expensive.
It is estimated to be R195 794 However this cost is excluding a few extras that would bring it just over R200 000
i live in a very small town near the Mozambique boarder in Mpumalanga South Africa with my parents. Just skimming through monthly , the price for my necessary surgery is just way more than what is affordable.
My parents have already done so much for me, so I want to do my part to help them with my costs. However, realistically I can’t do it without your help!
So I am asking you to please help me, it honestly would help so much.
I would really apprecate all the help i can get.
Thank you for your time. God bless you.
