FAQ:  Jaw Surgery




Question:
I'm wondering if braces are needed when preparing for jaw surgery when the teeth already fit in in the place the jaw is moved into? ... Visitor from Sweden

Answer:
Orthognathic surgery and braces are the usual combination for treating jaw disparities.

Oral surgeons do not focus on keeping teeth aligned. That is not what they are being paid to do.

Ortho treatments are usually required to get "everything perfect", from an orthodontist's perspective.
