Okay, I probably just be too chicken to get the surgery, to be honest.
You could pig out on fruit ahead of time to store up some fat, then just avoid eating for a week....
Out of curiousity, if you're willing to say, what is the problem and what was it that childhood orthodontia did to exacerbate it? The reason I ask is that lots of orthodontics as a child failed to permanently improve my tooth arrangement as well, but a few years after I got my upper wisdom teeth taken out, the teeth straightened out perfectly on their own. Unfortunately my lower wisdom teeth are impacted, and I never found a dentist willing to take out my second molars so the third molars could grow in to replace them.
Yeah, my gums are healthy. There have been times when they bled back when I ate no whole foods, but that was easily fixed with adequate vitamin C or brushing at the gum line. One of the reasons removal of the impacted teeth would be so difficult is because they're covered by a substantial amount of healthy gum as well as healthy bone.
