Will I need braces before or after surgery?

Your orthodontic needs will be evaluated before surgery and in collaboration with your regular orthodontist. Because aligning your jaw correctly often involves preparing your teeth to be aligned, many of our patients require orthodontic treatment before and after surgery. How long you will need to wear braces varies from case to case. Speak with your orthodontist and your doctor to learn more about your options – and which steps will help you achieve the best outcome for you.
