Chin Reduction While Wearing Smart Clip Braces?
Doctor Answers (1)
Depends on the surgery
The safety in question relies totally on what is being done. Are you having a sliding genioplasty? (where the bone is actually cut and moved?) or are you having some fat or bone shaved down? If its the former definitely check with your ortho because this may affect the way your teeth meet. If its the latter then you likely do not have much to worry about.
