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 FAQs

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.

Your Jaw Surgery procedure will be performed in James P Bradley, MD's surgery center located in New York.

“Dr. Bradley is an excellent plastic surgeon. I was diagnosed with a tumor in my jaw when I was thirteen. At the time, other doctors suggested 3-4 reconstructive surgeries with partial removal of my tumor. Dr. Bradley suggested one surgery with complete removal of the tumor, and he operated within my mouth to not leave a scar on my face. His skills and kindness towards all his patients are amazing. I felt that Dr. Bradley truly cared about me as a patient. I would recommend him to everyone.
