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.
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 determine if orthognathic surgery is
the correct treatment option for you.
If it is determined Orthognathic Surgery is the most desirable way
to go, we will refer you to excellent surgeons who we have worked closely
with for years.
