How do doctors decide whether orthognathic (jaw) surgery is appropriate?
During the initial consultation, your oral and maxillofacial surgeon will review your history and perform a clinical evaluation.
Records from your orthodontist or dentist will also be reviewed. These include:
Once all the information is obtained, the surgeon will then discuss the case with your orthodontist. Prior to your operation, your case will be presented and discussed at an Orthognathic Conference, which is attended by consulting surgeons and orthodontists.
At this conference, the group will determine and develop a plan to achieve the best functional and esthetic outcome based on all of the information gathered. Then we will meet with you and your family to discuss the results and outline the next steps in treatment.
