Once the surgeon has accessed the lower jaw bone then the jaw is cut in a controlled precision manner to align in a particular manner as it had been earlier decided during the trial. Once the mandibular is in position it is fixed into its place with the help of titanium plates that are very inert and safe to be used in the human body. The surgeon then closes the incision in the gums with the help of dis solvable stitches.
