Video: Orthognathic Surgery Testimonial
Orthognathic Treatment Alternative
Overbite Surgery without Braces: My lower jaw is set further back than my top jaw resulting in a gummy smile, difficulty closing my mouth and keeping it closed, aching in my jaw etc.
I am hoping to have corrective surgery but I don't like the thought of having to wear braces, making my mouth look even uglier than it is already.
I want to know if I have my crooked front teeth removed, top and bottom, and replaced with a bridge of new perfect teeth can I still have corrective jaw surgery and not the braces? ... Visitor from United Kingdom
To allow the surgery to be successful, the top and bottom teeth must be leveled via orthodontics.
The answer to your question is no.
