Orthognathic Surgery

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 strives to correct these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve overall appearance and function. Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will demonstrate the overall function and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Surgical treatment is generally delayed until growth is almost complete.

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.
