This helps us digitally plan your surgery beforehand. The day of surgery you will be comfortably sedated while Dr. Lane repositions your jaw. Afterwards, we will monitor you and you may spend the night in the hospital to ensure proper healing. Detailed follow-up instructions will then be given so you can recover comfortably at home.
