Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, jaws and the teeth. Abnormalities of this sort often cause difficulty with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these functional problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, may dramatically enhance a patient’s facial appearance.
Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times, recovery periods, and the overall efficacy of jaw surgery. State-of-the-art materials, including titanium plates and miniature fixation screws, provide stability, strength and predictability of surgical treatment. These advances in technology, procedures, and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, thus allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.
