The proper time for titanium (metal) pin removal surgery after orthognathic surgery is 6 months after.

There has been an increase in the number of patients who underwent orthognathic surgery and live more comfortably. Those people had difficulty in communicating with others or chewing food. They also greatly suffered from their appearance. Double jaw surgery helped them overcome those problems and improve functional and aesthetic aspects.

Fixation pins are necessary after corrective jaw surgery to fit fractured bones and to help tissue and muscles be adhered well. Fixation pins are divided into two types: metal or absorbable. Metal pins can cause the following problem.

The fact that patients underwent surgeries can be revealed when they visit dental clinics or pass through airport security. The pins do not make sound, but people around the screen can see them. If patients want to hide the fact that they had surgeries, it must be embarrassing.

Dr. Sang Hoon Park, the director of ID Hospital, states that “The pins used for corrective jaw surgery do not need to be removed. The pins are made of titanium which is the same material with implants. Titanium material is not harmful to human body. Majority of patients who want to remove pins are the ones who do not want to be exposed at the airport security or on the X-ray films.”

Dr. Park also says that “This trend gives rise to the increase in the number of requests regarding melting pins which are disassembled and absorbed to the body after certain period. Likewise, more and more patients who had titanium pins ask for pin removal surgery. The most appropriate time to remove pins is 6 months after the surgery, when the fractured bones and tissues are healed and hardened well.”
