Surgical Orthodontics

surgicalCorrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities lead to difficulty chewing, talking, sleeping, or doing other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems, and in conjunction with our orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.

Using the latest technology in low-dose radiation digital imaging, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times, recovery periods and improves the overall result 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, which allows patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.

Orthognathic surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment alone can correct the problem, and we do our best to minimize surgical intervention whenever possible. However, we can only determine if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you with a consultation and proper diagnostic studies.
