In brief: Prevents relapse
This procedure if required and performed prevents the possibility of relapse of corrected rotations by orthodontics.
It makes your results more stable. It is generally done under mild local anesthetic. A short course of pain medication is mostly advised. An antibiotic prescription might be sometimes prescribed. Please see the previous answers on this subject.
