Abnormalities of the jaws can cause facial imbalances, difficulty with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. In some instances, orthodontic treatment can correct these problems however, there are times when braces alone will not achieve the desired result.
Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery), using a team approach between the oral surgeon and orthodontist maybe required to improve your bite, facial profile, and overall appearance.
If surgery is pursued, rest assured, advances in technology, procedures and equipment reduce post- surgical recovery time, allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.
We will help determine which treatment is the correct option for you.
