Hi, my name is Woojae Kim and I am a high school student living in Northern California. Everything about my life is good so far but I have one problem, my teeth. My lower teeth overlaps my upper teeth and I have been dealing with my whole life. When I was twelve years old, my lower jaw completely overlapped my upper jaw. But after I went to the dentist and got my teeth fixed, my teeth started to overlap again as I grew older in high school. And my dentist recommends first that I should have orthognathic surgery to fix my teeth and jaws overlapping. And I have heard that you guys can fix this in a short amount of time. But how long is it going to take to completely fix my teeth with orthognathic surgery that includes repair and recovery in total? And how much will it cost in South Korea in your hospital for orthognathic surgery?

Thank you,

Woojae Kim

    Hello

    Thank you for showing an interest in ID Hospital.

    Double Jaw surgery

    As far as the Double Jaw Surgery, ID Hospital is the best in the nation for this complex surgery, and is the first hospital in Asia, to specialize in maxillofacial surgery.

    Orthognathic Surgery is also known as Corrective Jaw surgery and Two jaw surgery and Three jaw surgery are types of Orthognathic surgery.

    Two-jaw surgery separates the upper and lower jaws and adjusts them in the correct position. The procedure is suitable for conditions including mandibular prognathism, mouth protrusion, facial asymmetry, and other abnormal positioning of the jaw. Traditionally, braces were required to be worn 1 to 1.5 years prior to surgery. The double Jaw surgery method originating from ID Hospital is an innovative procedure that has shortened the whole surgery time by eliminating the braces prior to surgery. After the surgery, a wafer is worn for one month followed by braces. Usually, depending on the cases, braces are required after the surgery to re-align the bite

    We recommend booking at least 2 months before desired surgery date.

    <Time required in Korea and recovery period>
    Patients of Double jaw surgery are required to stay in Korea at least for 5 weeks. Before surgery, a week is required to make wafer mold impression.

    You will be hospitalized for 2~3 days and 2 or 3 times of treatment sessions required within a month. Stitches will be removed 14 days after surgery. Post orthodontic treatment can begin 1 month after surgery. You can process this with a dentist in your country, or visit our hospital once every 1 month~ 3 month.
