Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth.
Corrective Jaw Surgery
Corrective jaw surgery is used to treat and correct abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth.
Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.
Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery prior to beginning any treatment.
We Invest in the Latest Technology Because it Allows Our Patients to Return to Normal After Surgery
By using computerized treatment planning, we are able to minimize treatment times and recovery periods, as well as improve the overall efficacy of your surgery.
State-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength, and predictability to your treatment.
These advances in technology, procedures and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, thus allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.
“Do I Need Corrective Jaw Surgery?”
Because of advances in orthodontics, we can sometimes correct the problem with orthodontic treatment, rather than surgery. Every case is unique, so we will determine the best treatment option for you after a thorough evaluation.
