Corrective jaw surgery (oral surgery) by a registered oral and maxillofacial surgeon 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. Oral surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.
Using orthodontic software technology, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of oral surgery. Materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength and predictability to your treatment. These procedures and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, thus allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.
Oral surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. We will determine if oral surgery is the correct treatment option for you.
