In adult patients with jaw discrepancies (i.e. Size and/or position) surgical correction (orthognatic surgery) may be necessary. In this case, teeth will first be aligned with braces. Then the orthognatic surgeon will correct the position of the jaws. Cooperation between the orthodontist and surgeon can lead to great results even in difficult situations.
We collaborate with Odense- and Esbjerg Hospital in connection with these treatments. The orthodontic part of the treatment takes place in our office, whereas the surgical part is performed at the hospital under general anaesthesia.
