  • Can I get jaw surgery after braces?

    Jaw surgery is traditionally completed after dental "decompensation" orthodontics, or braces.

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
