Meet Elena

Jaw surgery corrected Elena’s bite.
I came to Columbia Basin Oral Surgeons because I was told when I was younger that I needed surgery and that it would help me when I was older. Growing up with an underbite, I wasn't really sure how it affected me. It grew normal at first, and I had gotten used to it. When I was told I had to go through the surgery, I was feeling nervous. Dr. Teeples was very helpful. He made me feel very comfortable. He had told me everything that I needed to know. After the surgery and I recovered, I noticed that my bite is very different. Eating is very different. It had also helped me clear up my breathing, so I can breathe way better than I ever expected, and it's just great. I love how I look.
