Why do I need orthodontic treatment as well as an operation?

October 9, 2019

If your jaws are to be moved into an improved position, it is important that your teeth are also moved so that they will meet better after the operation.

Fixed “train track” type braces are fitted about 18 months before surgery (but it may take longer). They are worn for up to six months after surgery, until the teeth are finely adjusted and stabilised.

Lastly, there will be a period where a removable retainer brace is worn at night that holds the teeth in their new position.
