Jaw surgery corrects the bite problem and improves the facial structures. Normally braces are on for approximately 12 months and then the surgery is carried out by a maxillofacial surgeon.
Surgical cuts allow the jaws to be moved into the ideal position and then braces are adjusted for another 9 months approximately to give a beautiful dental and facial result.
The hospital stay is usually a few days and then you wear elastics holding the jaws in position for 6 weeks while everything heals. Braces then continue for a few months after the surgery to “detail” the occlusion.
Hey all, I’ve just had my last appointment in ace braces, I am absolutely delighted with the results, I can’t stop smiling because now I have the confidence to smile & not be embarrassed about my teeth, I can’t thank Kevin & his team enough, not only for there excellent work, also for there pleasantness, kindness & warm welcome each & every time I had my appointment, I honestly have never met nicer people.
I would highly, highly recommend Kevin & his team.”Nicola
