Jaw Surgery

 

Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth.  Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated 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.  We will work closely with your oral surgeon (or help you find one) to develop a orthognathic treatment plan tailored to address your specific needs.

Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will work with your oral surgeon to demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery.  Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times, recovery periods and 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.

Orthognathic surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem.  With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case.  We will help you determine if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you.
