  • I would recommend you to visit the surgeon who initially treated you as this was a major surgery and requires continuous follow up...So, visiting another dentist for a fresh treatment will be more harmful...You dentist will shoot an OPG and after that only it can be decided that do you require another surgery or not...as if the oclussion after surgery is perfect but the chin is deviated than no need for surgery but if the oclussion is still not correct and chin is deviated than most probably you require a treatment...For more info visit the link....http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-braces-21.aspx
