The surgery had to be more thorough as well. The surgery must be performed by a surgeon who has expertise and experience. After 1 month of surgery, the muscles will begin to be reconstructed. The bones begin to heal after 6 weeks to see the full change.
Advantages of jaw-free surgery The first is comfort and safety. Because tying teeth after surgery makes breathing difficult and suffering. But if surgery is not fastened, you can open your mouth to breathe. Make it easy to breathe and talk. Therefore, the patient feels safe by using non-harmful titanium plates to hold the jawbone together, eliminating the need for titanium plates to be removed after surgery.
