Orthodontic Treatment Combined with Surgery

Orthodontic treatment combined with orthognathic surgery refers to a procedure aimed at adjusting the position of the jaw in conjunction with orthodontic alignment to correct and improve abnormal facial structure. This includes addressing issues related to appropriate teeth alignment. In some cases, even minor abnormalities in jaw size, shape, or position can have an impact, leading to abnormal biting and chewing patterns, as well as contributing to facial irregularities.”

Why is orthodontic treatment combined with orthognathic surgery necessary? What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?

  • It can help correct abnormalities in the positioning of teeth, ensuring proper occlusion, improving the alignment of teeth for aesthetic purposes, and enhancing functionality.
  • It aids in correcting and improving abnormal facial structures such as crooked profiles, protruding chins, and misaligned bites, ensuring proper and efficient chewing.
  • Improvements in speech clarity and articulation, along with the enhancement of facial aesthetics, contribute to an overall more attractive appearance.
  • In certain cases, it helps address issues related to the closure of the lips, allowing for a more natural appearance.
