The difference with regular orthodontics

Two jaw surgery corrects asymmetry, under/over bite, and other casuses of unbalanced features. The human body has the innate ability to adapt to any situation and this leads to have abnormal teeth located. Two jaw surgery only restores bone frame, does not correct malocclusion. Therefore, postoperative corrective orthodontics are necessary to relocate tooth on corrected bone frame and to avoid recurrence of reverting to preoperation location.

Orthodontics after Two Jaw surgery use the same similar devices and treatment methods as regular braces.
