Checking your progress

Checking your progress At first, your surgeon may want to see you every couple months to plan surgery and check your progress. As surgery nears, your visits may increase. Several weeks before the surgery, your surgeon may perform one more simulate or mock surgeries on your casts of your teeth to plan each detail. If the braces move the teeth differently than expected, your surgeon may alter or delay surgery until. your ready. Once surgery is scheduled, your surgeon will discuss what type of surgery you will have and whether you may need a bone graft from another part of your body to build up a part of your jaw that is too small.
