Okay, overI know I’m far from top tier but I’d like to know specifically why and what/how to improve. People tend to say I look good but I feel like they’re trying to be nice. Shitty ass selfies included belowlookism.net
Aesthetic jaw surgery in people who already have a good bite (good alignment and no dental compensation) can usually avoid braces altogether.
what about the relapse rate? how do they even stabilize the bite after surgery without braces?Aesthetic jaw surgery in people who already have a good bite (good alignment and no dental compensation) can usually avoid braces altogether.
sometimes people have good alignment after their initial round of braces but have a compensated bite where teeth are pro lined outward to meet the teeth of the opposing jaw in order to avoid jaw surgery. In these cases it’s best to go through orthodontic decompensation so you can have jaws moved forward maximumly or most aesthetically.
surgery first is also an option most of the time. In many cases it makes more sense because teeth actually move faster after jaw surgery.
dental movement and skeletal movements as well as dental/orthodontic relapse and skeletal relapse are two different things.what about the relapse rate? how do they even stabilize the bite after surgery without braces?
can you do (counter)clockwise movements without surgery?
dental movement and skeletal movements as well as dental/orthodontic relapse and skeletal relapse are two different things.
Even if one is not in braces maxillomandibular fixation can still be achieved using an arch at like the Erich archbar with elastics or Intermaxillary Fixation screws (IMF Screws).
You will always have some orthodontic relapse after braces come off and some skeletal relapse (1 or 2mm) after jaw surgery. While a 6mm BSSO may relapse a mm or even less, a 11mm BSSO may relapse 2mm.
No you cannot achieve rotation without surgery.
so this statement u read on another forum isnt necesseraly true?It depends on your bite and alignment now. But yes it is definitely possible.
You will most likely still require braces after surgery, even if it is just for a short time. But I'm not an orthodontist.so this statement u read on another forum isnt necesseraly true?
It doesn't matter if you bite is fine now. The only way you won't need braces for surgery, is if:
-No rotations are performed, or the rotation of the mandible and maxilla is 1:1.
-If only linear advancement is performed, it is an equal amount in regard to the maxilla and mandible.
My bite is fine but I'm getting braces. Because my mandible is being rotated a certain amount, and my maxilla is being rotated a certain amount in the opposite direction"
if i remember correctly dr sailer claims that if you get jaw surgery with him for sleep apnea you most likely wont need bracesProb p rare since most people w class 1 occlusion aren’t getting leforts , plus I think if u get bsso u still need to move teeth to accommodate the fracture most surgeons prefer . There is surgery first approach too but u stil have post op braces
