When alignment problems affect your ability to speak, eat, and live normally, you may need to undergo corrective surgery. Prior to surgery, Dr. Michael Emanuel may recommend pre-surgical orthodontics in Brooklyn, New York, to prepare your mouth and enhance the results. Pre-surgical orthodontics may include using an orthodontic appliance to coordinate the jaws and teeth so that they are in proper position at the time of surgery. For more information about pre-surgical orthodontics, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our friendly orthodontist.
