Surgical Orthodontic Treatment

Surgical orthodontic treatment, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a specialized type of procedure aimed at correcting facial bone abnormalities, particularly in the jaws and teeth. These abnormalities can often lead to difficulties in essential functions such as chewing, speaking and even sleeping, impacting your quality of life. Orthognathic surgery, when combined with orthodontic treatment, addresses these issues comprehensively, ultimately enhancing both functionality and the aesthetic appearance of the facial profile.

Advancements in surgical techniques and materials have revolutionized the field of orthognathic surgery. State-of-the-art materials like titanium plates and miniature screws play a pivotal role in providing stability, strength and predictability to the treatment process. These technological breakthroughs not only improve the effectiveness of the surgery but also contribute to reducing post-surgical recovery time significantly. As a result, you can expect a quicker return to their daily activities and routines following the procedure.

However, it is essential to note that orthognathic surgery may not always be necessary. In some cases, orthodontic treatment alone can effectively address the underlying issues. With the continual advancements in orthodontics, the need for surgical intervention is becoming less frequent. Our team of experts will carefully evaluate your condition to determine the most appropriate treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals.
