Surgical Treatment

Sometimes the malalignment of the teeth isn’t just a matter of crooked teeth. There can also be underlying jaw discrepancies that contribute to a bad bite. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with everyday functions like chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. To fix this bad bite would take more than just braces and orthodontics. Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction 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 esthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning realistically predicts treatment times and recovery periods, and improves 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.
