The success of an orthognathic surgery depends on various factors such as anatomical details, the experience level of the dentists and surgeons forming the orthodontic team and the most important of all, the presurgical orthodontics treatment. This is done in order to prepare the patient for any upcoming surgeries like cleft treatment, orthognathic surgery etc. Orthognathic surgery is a jaw surgery done to improve the shape and structure of the jaw. Before this surgery, an orthodontic treatment for straightening the teeth is inevitable. These treatments may require a long-term commitment from the person undergoing such surgery. Care should be taken in the planning phase for the surgery to be successful. Patients may also be asked to consult speech therapists, ENTs, plastic surgeons etc. Some clinics use planning software to assess the face after such surgery. Orthodontic appliances are used during presurgical orthodontic treatment as the teeth must be coordinated with the jaws for them to fit well after the surgical procedure. The duration for presurgical orthodontics is somewhere between 6 months to 18 months. Braces are placed on the teeth to avoid crowding and to foster favourable position with the jaw. Teeth impressions are taken to record the progress, during this treatment. After the presurgical treatment gets completed, the surgeon assesses the patient and decides the number of procedure or sessions required for further treatment. The cost of the treatment depends on the number of procedures required.
