Jaw (Orthognathic) Surgery
Jaw Surgery is used to move the jaws to create the best dental bite and aesthetic appearance. Jaw surgery is recommended for patients with dentofacial deformities that cannot be corrected by orthodontics alone.
Jaw Surgery Objectives
- Achieve the best dental occlusal relationship
- Optimize facial aesthetics, balance, and beauty
Patient Success Story
What dentofacial deformity do I have?
Your dentofacial deformity may be Class III (prominent lower jaw), Class II (small lower jaw), vertical maxillary excess (gummy smile), short lower face, or facial asymmetry.
How long will the entire process take?
The length of the entire process from presurgical orthodontics to jaw surgery to post surgical refinements will vary from patient-to-patient, but may take 9-14 months. If you are a candidate for ‘surgery-first’ or ‘rapid orthodontic preparation,’ then your length of treatment will be shortened considerably.
