jaw compressions

One of the treatments is maxillary disjunction

Using 3D planning, we make measurements and make the appliances to carry out maxillary expansion. It is a medium complexity procedure that is performed under general anesthesia with ideally one day of hospitalization.

After surgery, a device is installed that after seven days begins to expand one mm per day. Then the orthodontist in a wider jaw can align the teeth in a wider jaw obtaining a wide smile consistent with the size of the jaw. Sometimes it is necessary to perform another surgery at a second time to align the upper jaw with the lower one.
