Although we try to avoid it whenever possible, corrective jaw surgery (also known as orthognathic surgery) can be used to treat and correct abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. But with the latest advances in orthodontics, standard treatment can often fix a problem without having to turn to more invase methods.
Often, jaw abnormalities can cause difficulty chewing, talking, sleeping or other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile, helping you build the perfect smile.
If we must turn to surgery, we are able to use the latest in digital imaging technology to 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, allowing patients to return to their normal routines quickly and easily.
