What Should Patients Know about Teeth Straightening Surgery?

Santa Monica, CA – Most people immediately associate teeth straightening procedures with having braces fitted. However, there are occasions when surgery may be required to create a healthy, beautiful smile.

Dr. Atoosa Nikaeen firmly believes that every person deserves a beautiful smile at any age and strives to provide the orthodontic treatments necessary to transform your smile. Dr. Nikaeen advocates that many people may benefit from adding dental surgery as part of an accelerated orthodontic treatment plan.

Teeth straightening surgery tends to have the best effects for people with a jaw misalignment, an overbite or an underbite. Others who may benefit from orthognathic surgery include those who experience headaches or joint pains from misaligned jaws.

Orthognathic surgery is usually performed by an maxillofacial surgeon in conjunction with orthodontics in order to correct a range of dental irregularities. Corrective jaw surgical treatments can improve chewing, swallowing, speaking and even breathing, but it also helps to transform any smile.

People who do undergo teeth straightening surgery usually wear either braces or Invisalign, as this is the first step in a treatment plan towards corrective jaw surgery. However, to achieve the desired effects –  jaw surgery patients usually need to wear braces or Invisalign for shorter periods of time, before-and-after jaw surgery.

Dr. Nikaeen also advises that orthognathic surgery isn’t suitable for every person. In some cases, it may be possible to fit Invisalign clear aligners to straighten a few crooked teeth. Other people may benefit from different forms of orthodontic treatments, and there is also a range of non-surgical treatments available that may be better suited to others.

With so many customizable orthodontic treatments available, it really is possible to transform any smile. The key is to teeth straightening options is to understand how each type of treatment may affect the results you can achieve.
