Orthodontic problems can be related to the teeth, jaws, or both. Dental problems such as crowding, gaps between the teeth, and closing disorders can only be corrected with orthodontic treatment.

Incompatibility of the jaws is high

  • lower jaw anterior or posterior to normal,
  • upper jaw behind normal,
  • open bite between the anterior teeth,
  • jaw asymmetry,
  • such as gingival smile due to drooping of the upper jaw

In skeletal problems, the desired results may not be obtained by correcting only the teeth. In these cases, orthognathic surgery (jaw surgery) is applied together with orthodontic treatment, allowing us to achieve a smooth jaw closing relationship.

Orthognathic surgery is applied through the mouth under general anesthesia after growth and development is completed. Surgery planning is done by an orthodontist and a plastic surgeon or maxillofacial surgeon.
The operations can be applied to one chin, two chins, as well as to the chin, cheekbones and nose.
In the first week after surgery, patients experience pain, swelling, and limitation of jaw movements. However, this period is overcome with painkillers and some medications. It is forbidden to eat hard foods in the first weeks following the surgery. Depending on the type of surgery, recovery will be seen within 4-6 weeks.
Orthodontic treatment is usually completed within 6-8 months after surgery.
