Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping, and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.
We will use digital imaging technology to demonstrate the overall benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times and recovery periods and improves the overall results of your surgery.
Like all other orthodontic procedures, orthognathic surgery is safe. We will refer you to a trusted oral surgeon who will complete your surgery.
State-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide superior stability and strength. This gives your surgery results longevity and durability you can count on.
Advances in surgery technology and procedures have made orthognathic surgery more comfortable than ever. While there is still a short recovery time, most patients are back to their normal routine soon after surgery.
With improvements in orthodontic treatment and technology, many issues can be resolved without orthognathic surgery. We will do a thorough examination and evaluation of your orthodontic needs to make our recommendations for your unique case. We will only recommend surgery if we believe that it is vital to achieving your orthodontic results.
If surgery is deemed necessary, we will walk you through each step and ensure you are set up for a successful surgery and recovery time. Fortunately, advances in surgical technology and procedure have drastically reduced post-surgical recovery time. In fact, most patients return to their normal routines soon after surgery.
