The treatment process at the OSC

Most patients who need corrective jaw surgery are accompanied by malocclusion and undergo orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontic treatments can be performed in three different methods based on the type of malocclusion. These methods include "pre-surgical orthodontics" technique in which the patient receives surgery after completion of orthodontic treatment; "surgery-first orthodontics" technique in which the patient receives surgery followed by orthodontic treatment; and “minimal pre-surgical orthodontics” technique in which there is early surgical intervention after a short period of orthodontic treatment.
Pre-operative evaluation and surgical planning are conducted in a timely manner, and the oral and maxillofacial surgeon and the orthodontist agree on the final treatment plan based on a thorough analysis of diagnostic data gathered during the pre-operative assessment.

The patient is admitted to the hospital a day before the surgery, and on the day of surgery, the operation will be carried out as planned in a major operating room under general anesthesia.
The length of hospital stay varies from 3 to 6 days depending on the extent of surgery and the patient's post-operative condition. After being discharged from the hospital, the patient will receive outpatient treatment for another 4 to 6 weeks followed by initiation of post-surgical orthodontic treatment. Also, there will be regular follow-up visits 2 or 3 times per year to check on the post-operative skeletal stability.

치아교정과 턱교정수술 함께 진행 - 상담 및 환자 상태 평가(환자의 주소 및 불편감 파악 / 임상진단, 사진촬영 / 인상채득을 통한 교합관계 평가 / 방사선사진 및 CT 촬영을 통한 안면골격 평가)->교정 진단:치료계획 결정(선교정, 선수술, 조기수술)

선교정 후수술(수술 전 교정 치료)->선수술 후교정:수술 진단(환자의 주소 및 임상적, 방사선학적 정보를 바탕으로 수술 방법, 이동량 결정) -> 수술 준비 (턱교정 수술 : 양악/상악/하악 등, 안면윤곽술 : 이부성형술/관골성형술/하악각절제술/피질골절제술/보형물고정 등)턱교정 수술만 진행-상담 및 환자 상태 평가(환자의 주소 및 불편감 파악 / 임상진단, 사진촬영 / 인상채득을 통한 교합관계 평가 / 방사선사진 및 CT 촬영을 통한 안면골격 평가)

수술-입원 기간 : 약 3~6일 전신마취(전신상태 평가/필요시 자가수혈 준비/수술용 스플린트 제작/필요시 RP model 제작) -> 수술 후 통원 치료(수술 후 4~6주간 진행 수술 부위 및 수술 후 회복 검진) -> 수술 후 정기 검진 - 수술 후 3, 6, 12개월 수술 부위 및 수술 후 회귀 및  안정성 검진 (사진촬영 / 방사선 촬영  / 골유합 확인 / 필요시 금속판제거수술 시행) -> 치료 완료
