How W Orthodontics Is Involved
While orthognathic surgery is often performed by an oral surgeon, having a trusted orthodontist is an integral part of the process. Our orthodontists work closely with the surgeons to make sure your end result is ideal. Often, this means patients will have to wear braces before and/or after their surgery. These braces help prepare your jaw for the surgery and assist in recovery. Additionally, custom retainers ensure your jaw and teeth stay in the proper position.
