Surgical Orthodontics


Surgical Orthodontics

Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) is a procedure that fixes many different abnormalities that can manifest with our jaw bone or teeth. These abnormalities can result from our natural development as adolescents, bad oral habits like thumb sucking or mouth breathing, and even poor oral hygiene. These skeletal and dental issues can result in patients having difficulty with breathing, eating, and sleeping. 

At the office of Dr. Roy Gonzalez, we offer corrective jaw surgery to help our patients achieve a healthier smile and be free from the daily difficulties caused by their teeth and jaw issues. 

What Is Corrective Jaw Surgery? 

The first step in the process of corrective jaw surgery is an initial consultation with your local orthodontist, where you sit down and discuss with your doctor if this surgery will be the right solution for you, what other options you have, the details of treatment, and more. 

If you do choose to move forward with surgery, everything else is put in the expert hands of Dr. Gonzalez, augmented by our state-of-the-art technology. From low-dose radiation digital imaging to computerized treatment planning, we minimize treatment time and improve recovery periods, so you can get your new smile sooner. We also use high-quality, durable materials such as titanium implants and miniature screws to ensure that your jaw is stable.

Is Corrective Jaw Surgery Necessary? 

Orthognathic surgery only becomes necessary if orthodontic treatment alone cannot correct the problem. We do our best to minimize surgical intervention whenever possible, and will discuss with you what other treatment options are available to you before we consider moving forward with surgery. However, the only way that we can determine if orthognathic surgery is going to be necessary is with our initial consultation and examination. With a proper diagnosis of your oral health and any present abnormalities, we can work to create a personalized treatment plan for you to achieve a healthier smile.
