Jaw Surgery to treat Open bite
This video is an introduction to open bite jaw surgery at UI Health
When can I schedule for surgery?
- Your teeth must be ready for surgery
Progress Dental Models/Scans [Surgery Feasibility Models] to check when the teeth fit like a puzzle. Stable bite for surgery.
- Insurance approval for the surgery
Submit X-rays, Pictures and a Letter of Functional Problems ~3-6 months before the anticipated surgery
4-6 weeks to get an approval or denial for surgery
If the teeth are ready and we have insurance approval, then we can assign a surgical date 6 to 8 weeks later.
