Implants before double jaw surgery?

Implants before double jaw surgery
Congratulations on your progress with your teeth! I understand that you want your lateral incisors replaced as soon as possible, but it is important that you wait to do this until after your jaw surgery. To place the implants ideally, your surgeon will need to take the lower jaw position in to account. In the meantime, have your orthodontist fabricate a retainer for you that includes the lateral incisors. Good luck!

Implants should be after jaw surgery.
