The patient arrives at the orthodontist and the latter prescribes him/her a treatment that can be surgical or not. The orthodontist should explain to the patient that the surgery is also an option.
Dr. Ion Nicolescu, founder of the NAOS clinic, explained during the Digi Matinal show what does orthognatic surgery mean and what are its main benefits: getting a correct bite, a harmonious facial profile but also improved breathing.
