Ortho with Surgery
There are cases in which teeth are impacted. An impacted tooth is a tooth that will not erupt by itself into the mouth. After space is created for this tooth in the dental arch, the surgeon exposes the tooth and the orthodontist will pull it into place.
Orthognathic (jaw) surgery
When one jaw is very protruded, very narrow or very detruded as opposed to the other jaw, the disproportion is not esthetic. Orthodontics alone cannot achieve a satisfactory esthetic and functional result. There is a need for the combination of orthodontics and surgery. At first, the teeth are straightened, then the surgery will coordinate the jaws, after recovery, then the orthodontist will continue the detailed correction to achieve the optimal bite.
