Plate In My Jaw

This is the end result of my surgery.  You can see a thin titanium plate on the right side of my jaw (left side of the picture).  The wiring of my jaw was accomplished by setting screws into my gums and then wrapping a thin wire around the top and bottom.  The crowns visible are from a previous accident.

I’ve gone by the moniker Silent Scott for a while, but it wasn’t until now that I had a physical reason that I would be so quiet.  I recently broke my jaw in a mountain biking accident and am now wired shut for 4 weeks.  This has given me the time to finally start a blog of my own, which I’ve self titled.  I don’t know exactly what I have planned for this site, but I’ll keep you posted.
