If you have a severe malocclusion or other orthodontic problem, you may need jaw alignment (orthognathic) surgery in conjunction with your orthodontic treatment to correct your bite relationship and achieve a healthy smile and balanced facial form. If indicated, our orthodontists will refer you to an appropriate oral surgeon to help us deliver optimal care. For more information on orthognathic surgery and to schedule your consultation give us a call at 804-740-7281.
Corrective (orthognathic) jaw surgery may be needed if your oral health, function, and appearance are affected by problems that cannot be corrected through more conservative treatments. Surgical treatment may be needed to correct an imbalance of the teeth, jaws, or facial bones. It is especially important to receive the treatment you need if these imbalances are causing difficulties in speaking, chewing, eating, sleeping, or other routine activities. In addition to making these activities easier and more comfortable, jaw surgery can help to improve your oral appearance and even the appearance of your overall facial profile.
At our office, we use the latest in technology, techniques, and materials to ensure that you achieve the best possible results. Before your treatment, we will review the procedure with you and show you the details of the treatment so you can feel comfortable with the care you receive at our office. You can rest assured that our team will provide you with a comfortable, positive experience.
