Most patients who receive orthodontic treatment have orthodontic problems that can be corrected using minimally invasive, nonsurgical treatment options. However, if your case is particularly complex or severe, our orthodontist may recommend surgical treatment to improve your oral health and function, enhance your overall wellbeing and ensure you receive the care you need.

What is surgical orthodontics?

Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a specialized branch of dentistry that combines orthodontic treatment with surgical procedures to correct severe dental and facial irregularities. While traditional orthodontics primarily focuses on aligning teeth, surgical orthodontics addresses more complex cases where jaw misalignment significantly impacts both oral function and facial aesthetics.

What are the benefits of surgical orthodontics?

Surgical orthodontics offers several compelling benefits, including:

  • Improved facial aesthetics: Surgical orthodontics can enhance the balance and symmetry of the face, leading to a more pleasing appearance.
  • Enhanced oral function: Proper jaw alignment can improve chewing, biting and speech, enhancing overall oral function and comfort.
  • Resolution of medical issues: Surgical orthodontics can alleviate breathing difficulties and reduce the risk of sleep apnea, contributing to better overall health.
  • Long-lasting results: Unlike some purely orthodontic treatments, surgical orthodontics provides lasting and stable results.
  • Boosted self-confidence: Improved facial aesthetics and a properly aligned smile can significantly enhance an individual's self-esteem and quality of life.
