Two Jaw Surgery

Surgical Type Comparison

IVRO (Intraoral Vertical Ramus Osteotomy)

IVRO is a method of Two Jaw Surgery that vertically fractures the posterior section of the mandibular bone. It avoids using plates or wires as a fixator to allow for the jaw to function naturally after the procedure, which is much more convenient for patients during post surgical recovery. Addtionally, the fracture line on the posterior section provides a slimming effect similar to the surgical outcome of facial contour surgeries.

SSRO (Sagittal Split Ramus Osteotomy)

SSRO, on the other hand, is a method that fractures the mandible near the molar, and the bone is fractured in two sections and removed, then reconnected for fixation. This method is known for its short recovery period, because the reattachment area has a larger surface area which helps the bones adhere more effectively for faster recovery. Additionally, postoperative oral-fixation period is considerably short.
