Jaw surgery is traditionally completed after dental "decompensation" orthodontics, or braces. This means your teeth will be orthodontically moved to their ideal positions within the upper/lower jaws and surgery is then completed to move the jaws in the correct places along with the teeth. For select cases patients may be candidates for jaw surgery first to improve the overall facial appearance first before having orthodontics afterwords to fine tune the teeth positions. READ MORE

Infections are rare but can occur, since all the incisions are in the mouth and you'll be eating as well. With diligent hygiene and taking precautions after surgery the chances should be very minimal. READ MORE
