Corrective jaw surgery, or orthognathic surgery, may be needed if your oral health, function and appearance are affected by problems that cannot be corrected through braces alone. Surgical treatment may be needed to correct abnormalities in the teeth, jaws or facial bones. It is especially important to receive the treatment you need if these abnormalities are causing difficulties in speaking, chewing, eating, sleeping or other routine activities. In addition to making these activities easier and more comfortable, jaw surgery can help to improve your oral appearance and even the appearance of your overall facial profile.
At our office, we use the latest technology, techniques and materials to ensure that you achieve the best possible results. It all begins with a referral from your orthodontist. We use the latest technique in jaw surgery planning called VSP (Virtual Surgical Planning) which involves 3D imaging, digital impressions, and a live planning session attended by our surgeons, your orthodontist, and an experienced engineer. Before your treatment, we will review the procedure with you and show you the details of the treatment so you can feel comfortable with the care you will receive. You can rest assured that our team will provide you with a comfortable, positive experience. We will look into your medical insurance plan, and explain travel and payment options.
