Orthognathic Surgery Presentation

To provide you with a better understanding of orthognathic surgery, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to orthognathic surgery are discussed.

Orthognathic Surgery is the surgical reshaping of the jaws. Working as a team with the orthodontist, our surgeons can often correct jaw growth abnormalities which can attribute to a malocclusion (bad bite). This surgical reshaping enhances both the function of the jaws and facial esthetics. Our surgeons use the following state of the art Orthognathic techniques:

  • Computer Aided Cephalometric Diagnosis
  • Computer Generated Facial Imaging
  • Maxillary (Upper Jaw) Surgery
  • Mandibular (Lower Jaw) Surgery
  • Chin Surgery
  • Cleft Lip- Palate Reconstruction
  • Zygomatic (Cheek Bone) Surgery
  • Rigid Fixation (Avoid Need for Jaw Wiring)
