Jaw surgery can be part of braces to get you the best result and the best smile, but it’s important to know your options and make the decision that works best for you. That’s why we’re here.
Braces move your teeth to straighten them, to give you a beautiful smile and a good fit or bite of your teeth. Everyone’s jaws and faces are put together differently. Nature and braces work together to give you the best smile and fit of the teeth.
Nature, alone, or with the help of braces move and align your teeth to fit with your jaws and your face. Braces have never been better.
But there are limits to how far the teeth can move, even with braces.
The jaws can be mismatched enough that just moving the teeth won’t give us the results we’d like.
We may need the teeth to move this much.
And nature only lets the move this much.
To get the best smile and fit of the teeth, surgery to move the jaws may be the best option to consider. Braces with surgery can do more than braces alone.
We’re happy to help you with the information to support you and let you make the best decision for you and your smile.
Surgery’s an option to explore if it makes sense for you, but it’s up to you to decide what’s best for you.
