How Is Orthognatic Surgery Performed?
At DT GROUP CLINICS, our patients are consulted by our Orthodontic and Oral Jaw Surgery specialists after computer-aided cetoolometric, panoramic and 3D imaging before orthognatic surgery, and then appropriate treatment planning is prepared for the patient. After our patients accept the treatment plan we recommend to them, the appointments are organized and the treatment process is initiated. The first step of treatment is the orthodontic treatment process, which will last an average of 1-2 years.
Before proceeding to the surgical step, the closures of the teeth on the jaws should be corrected. With the brace treatment applied, the teeth are brought to their positions where they should be and the jaw closures are ensured to be correct.
After the orthodontic treatment process is completed and the teeth on the jaw are in the right positions, the patient is directed to our jaw surgery clinic to plan the surgical process. Our jaw surgery performs the examination of our patient with 3D imaging and informs our patient about the procedure to be performed. After the surgical planning, the surgical stage is initiated with the approval of our patient. Our patient who undergoes a recovery period of approximately 1 month after orthognatic surgery has a final stage of orthodontic treatment that will last for 6-12 months. This treatment is the first orthodontic and corrective surgical treatment that ensures that the positions of the teeth are permanent.
