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 be needed 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.
At Phan Orthodontics, we use the latest in technology, techniques, and materials to ensure that you achieve the best possible results. Before your treatment, we will review the procedure with you and use computerized treatment planning to show you the details of the treatment; computerized treatment planning also helps to minimize treatment time and recovery periods. Following orthognathic surgery, you may need another orthodontic treatment such as braces to help you reach optimal results.
