Surgical orthodontics is a combination approach with general orthodontic treatments to achieve the best results.
Orthodontic appliances are specialty technologies for treating malocclusions from tooth irregularity or disproportionate jaws. Appliances might be recommended for early treatment, children’s orthodontics, or specialised corrections.
What is surgical orthodontics?
Patients may be suffering from significant facial imbalances and malocclusions (misaligned bites). In this case, we would recommend a combination of jaw surgery and orthodontic procedures to achieve the best results for life.
The combination approach allows for the correction of the jaw bones and significant improvement of teeth and bite alignment. In some cases, this can also improve breathing and speech concerns.
Typically, the time frame for surgical orthodontics ranges from 12 months to 30 months depending on the complexity of the case.
