Jaw surgery, or orthognathic surgery, may be needed if your oral health, function, and appearance are affected by problems that cannot be corrected through more conservative treatments. Surgical treatment may help 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, and 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.
Before your treatment, we will explain what you can expect and show you the details of the treatment so you can feel comfortable with the care you receive at our office. We will work closely with your oral surgeon so that you get the best result possible. You can rest assured that our team will provide you with a comfortable, positive experience.
