Jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery(or surgical- orthodontic) , realigns the jaws and teeth to improve the way they work and to improve your appearance. Jaw surgery may be a corrective option if you have moderate to severe jaw problems that can’t be resolved with orthodontics alone.
At Platinum Dental Group, we now utilize the Surgery-first Approach so that we can maximize the benefits of our patients.
The surgery – first approach indicates that the jaws surgery precedes the orthodontics treatment. The conventional approach is an orthodontics – first approach in which the orthodontic treatment precedes the jaws surgery. The advantages of the surgery – first approach that Platinum Dental Group deliver to patients are that.
- The patient’s chief complaint, dental function, and facial esthetics are achieved and improved in the beginning of treatment.
- The entire treatment period is shortened to 1 to 1,5 years or fewer depending on the complexity of orthodontic treatment.
With surgery first approach, our patients are no longer have to suffer from a time taking conventional jaws surgery approach as well as a transitional period of worse appearance when the patient is waiting for the jaws surgery.
