Share of Ms. Thu Trang (District 7): "Since I was a child, I have been associated with the nickname Trang Underbite, so I have a lot of low self-esteem.

At first, I was also afraid of pain, but when the surgery was done, I was anesthetized so it didn't hurt too much. But for those of you who are about to undergo jaw surgery, pay attention to treat oral diseases first, those who are in poor health should be nourished first, because after surgery, most people eat soft foods such as porridge, pho. , the rice is cooked soft, those who don't get used to it may not be able to eat it."
