In our practice we are pioneers in this technique (SF), which offers the possibility to place the braces two to three days before surgery, avoiding the deterioration of facial structures and obtaining results in less time.
When there are discrepancies between the maxillary bone and the jaw and it’s affecting the patient’s bite and facial aesthetics, the treatment must include orthodontics plus surgery.

- Decompensation and dental alignment with braces.
- Surgical intervention to reposition jaws, performed by a maxillofacial surgeon, in an operating room and under general anesthesia.
- The last step includes braces for a few months seeking the consolidation and settlement of the teeth.
