When Do You Need Surgery?

Surgical orthodontics, also known as jaw surgery or orthognathic surgery, is typically needed if your oral health, function, and appearance are affected by problems that cannot be corrected through more conservative treatments. It may be needed to correct abnormalities in the teeth, jaws, or facial bones and can help:
  • Restore jaw function to improve eating, speaking, chewing, or other routine activities
  • Relieve sleep apnea by realigning the jaws and teeth to open up the airway
  • Create space for incoming teeth
  • Improve facial profile
  • Improve oral appearance
  • Facilitate later orthodontic treatment
  • Improve open bite
  • Reduce grinding or excessive wearing of teeth
  • Committed to improving your smile
  • Our orthodontist can tell you if surgical orthodontics is a treatment option for you at your initial consultation. We will also answer any questions you may have, so you can make the right decisions for the long-term health of your smile.
