Orthognathic Surgery

 
  • Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones. These abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, and other routine, activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile and the quality of your everyday life.
  • We will show you a simulation of the post surgical result and discuss your options with you. 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 surgery.
  • Orthognathic surgery is unnecessary if orthodontic treatment alone can correct the problem. With the latest advances and training in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. We will use your orthodontic records to determine if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you.
