Double jaw (Two jaw) surgery involves cutting the upper and lower jaw to correct the abnormal form of the jaw, such as malocclusion, jutting chin, protruding mouth, micrognathia, long face, and facial asymmetry. It is a method of jaw corrective plastic surgery that is securely fixed by moving it to an aesthetically ideal position.
JW’s Double jaw surgery corrects various types of facial problems caused by the abnormal position of the jaw by correcting its position, improving both functional and aesthetic issues.
Patients can have the advantage of having double jaw surgery first and then having orthodontic treatment after surgery, which shortens the overall treatment period. This is a method of aligning the face bone through surgery with a jutting jaw, which was difficult to improve by correcting it alone and using an orthodontic treatment to fix the occlusion.
Previous double jaw surgery requires one and a half years of braces before the surgery, but now we can perform double jaw surgery prior to braces.
Intermaxillary fixation refers to tying the upper and lower teeth to each other using the arch bar in order to accurately maintain the position of the upper and lower jaw after jaw surgery.
In general, fixation is usually taking about 2-6 weeks. Non-fixed double jaw surgery refers to a method that does not perform this intermaxillary fixation after double jaw surgery.
