Orthognathic jaw surgery corrects skeletal abnormalities and asymmetries of the upper and lower jaws when orthodontic treatment (braces) alone is not enough. These asymmetries and abnormalities of the jaws often cause difficulty in the normal routine functions of eating and talking. Orthodontics combined with jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) corrects these problems of function while enhancing facial esthetics.
Orthodontic treatment (braces) and jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) is a combined approach designed to correct malocclusions (bad bite) and significant jaw discrepancies that can’t be corrected with traditional orthodontics alone.
In our office we use 3-dimensional imaging combined with computerized treatment diagnostics to design an individualized treatment plan to address your specific orthodontic problems.
