She revealed that she suffered from TMJ and an overbite because she “sucked my thumb til I was 9 ishhh which made the roof of my mouth suuuuuper narrow and my excessive overbite cause my teeth to have no contact whatsoever.”
Because of her overbite, she admits that she has difficulty biting into food and that she “had to use my tongue to help me chew and almost choked every time I ate.”
Brielle expressed some anxiety about the surgery.
“I was so scared… I was completely dreading this surgery fearing the worst of the worst,” she writes.
Biermann thanked her friends and family, as well as the team of doctors, who helped her get “thru the first two weeks, which are supposed to be the hardest.”
