Undetectable Orthognathic Surgery

Absorbed pins that melt, and leave
no trace of surgery!

What is Undetectable Orthognathic Surgery?

Instead of using metal fixing pins for adhesion of fractured bones, Undetectable Orthognathic Surgery uses dissolvable fixing pins that dissolve in the body over time. Metal pins made of titanium can fixate mandibular jaw bones, but patients don’t feel comfortable having them permanently remain in the body. Dissolvable pins, however, dissolve and disappear 2 years after surgery, which is a huge advantage since there won’t be any substance or any evidence of surgery left in the body. Newly developed pins that can fixate bones like titanium pins, along with id’s advanced medical technology in orthognathic surgery, have created a safe undetectable orthognathic surgery.
