Surgical Orthodontics

Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the jaw bones. These abnormalities may make it difficult to chew, talk, and sleep. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, 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. Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times and maximizes the effectiveness of the surgery. State-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength and predictability. These advances in technology, procedures and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.

Orthognathic surgery is only necessary if orthodontic treatment alone cannot correct the problem. We will help you decide if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you.
