Orthognathic (Jaw) Surgery
Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) 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. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, can improve the overall appearance of the facial profile. State-of-the-art materials, such as titanium plates and miniature screws, provide stability, strength and predictability to your treatment. Advances in technology, procedures and equipment have reduced post-surgical recovery time, thus allowing patients in the Miami area to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.
Orthognathic surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. We will determine if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you.
