Surgery to correct underbite

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: Florida  (9 years ago)

Hi all! I have a pretty bad underbite. (My jaws are not aligned and my teeth are crooked.) I really feel self-conscious about it. I would like to have correctional surgery done. Has anyone had this surgery done? How was the result? Please share your stories. I am really interested about it. I would be very thankful for any input.

Dear,
Does your dentist told you that you need correctional surgery?
Most of time, it is possible to achieve best result with regular orthodontic treatment. However, those decisions depends on severity of problem, your age, pt's esthetic concern etc.

Please visit your orthodontist for your problem and he will explain you all treatment options you have.
Best!

Can change your appearance and your life. But it is very complicated and expensive, and carries some surgical risk. Few insurance plans cover it.

An orthodontist and surgeon must work together from the start. The orthodontist "decompensates" your bite, preparing it for the surgery. After surgery, orthodontics continues for about 6 more months.
