More About Orthognathic Surgery
Orthognathic surgery is a type of corrective jaw surgery that fixes and treats certain facial bone abnormalities with respect to the teeth and the jaw. Oftentimes, facial bone abnormalities will cause problems when performing certain daily activities, such as chewing, talking and sleeping. In order to correct these problems, Orthognathic surgery works alongside orthodontic treatments. The overall facial profile is often enhanced greatly following the completion of this type of procedure.
By using the latest digital imaging technology, we are now able to demonstrate the overall functional and esthetic benefits of Orthognathic surgery. When we utilize the computerized treatment planning, we are able to enhance the efficacy of the surgery and reduce the treatment times and recovery periods.
We only use state-of-the-art materials for this procedure. These materials might include titanium plates and miniature screws that help provide stability, strength, and predictability to your treatment. Recovery time post-surgery can be minimized with these advances in technology, procedures, and equipment. Most patients are able to return to their normal routines shortly after the surgery.
Orthognathic surgery may not be necessary, if orthodontic treatment alone is able to correct the issue. This may be the case in many instances thanks to the latest developments and advancements in orthodontics. Call us today to schedule a free consultation. We will be happy to discuss whether Othognathic surgery is the right treatment for you.
