Orthognathic Surgery


Some issues with the teeth and jaws are best corrected with a combination of orthodontics and orthognathic (jaw) surgery. Orthognathic surgery may be used for functional changes (such as improving chewing ability or airway issues) or cosmetic corrections (idealizing the smile, facial symmetry, or profile).

We will let you know during your free initial consultation whether you or your child may be a candidate for orthognathic surgery. If you do select a treatment plan that includes surgery, we’ll help you find an excellent surgeon and will work closely with your surgeon and your general dentist to give you the best possible care throughout and after orthodontic treatment.
