Information on treatment and surgeryPost-surgery Orthodontics
Orthodontic treatment before jaw correction surgery (orthognathic surgery) is a common method used to improve aesthetics and function. This would require the patient to undergo orthodontic correction before and after the surgery to restore function.
On the other hand, the sequence of having orthognathic surgery prior to orthodontic treatment is an innovative method of improving aesthetics and moving teeth in a short period of time. As results are immediately observed, careful planning is crucial for this method of treatment.
Zeah Dental Hospital ensures satisfactory results through accurate diagnosis and treatment planning by experts in both oral and maxillofacial and orthodontic field
‘Post-surgery Orthodontics’ require accurate diagnosis, abundant experience and detailed treatment planning between oral and maxillofacial and orthodontic specialists.
