Jaw Surgery

  

Orthognathic surgery (corrective jaw surgery) can treat and correct abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and teeth. Oftentimes, problems in the jaw can cause other difficulties, such as with chewing, talking, sleeping or other routine activities. Jaw surgery can potentially correct these problems and, when used with orthodontic treatment, can improve the overall function of the jaws and the 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, recovery periods and the overall efficacy 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, 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.
