Monroe Surgical Orthodontics (Orthognathic Surgery)

Surgical orthodontics, also frequently called orthognathic surgery, is used to treat issues with:
·         jaw bone formation
·         bad bites
·         malocclusion – misaligned teeth.

An orthodontic surgery is the first line of defense to correct a misaligned jaw. Following this procedure, braces are put in to adjust them slowly into the appropriate place. At our CT Braces office of Monroe, we will set you up with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. The surgical procedure will occur in a hospital.

This surgical procedure will take a few hours. CT Braces of Monroe recommends the patients takes two to four weeks of rest. Following the rest period, you will be fitted for your new braces. The braces will be in place for 6-12 months. After the brace, you will be required to wear a retainer to make sure the placement of your teeth is solidified. Orthognathic Surgery has become routine throughout the years despite remaining a major medical procedure. Our team at CT Braces of Monroe is happy to help keep you comfortable with our procedures. Call the office to set up your initial exam!
