Your orthodontist will determine if you require orthodontic surgery as part of your treatment. It may be required to correct jaw issues if you have reached the age at which the jaw bone finishes developing. This usually occurs when a female reaches the age of 16 and when a male reaches 18. Jaw issues usually include bite problems or jaw bone abnormalities.
Surgery is performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon in a hospital. Your surgery will usually require a two week rest period, and it’s recommended that you take some time off from school or work to recover from this major treatment.
Your orthodontist will make necessary changes after your surgery in order to ensure your bite is correct. Braces may be required to be worn for six months to a year after surgery. Once your braces are removed, you will be issued a retainer to ensure that the spacing and alignment of your teeth remains where it needs to be.
Orthodontic surgery can have great results for those who suffer from jaw issues and pain. Above all, it is part of the process in giving you the radiant and healthy smile you deserve.
