Orthognathic surgery, or corrective jaw surgery, corrects a wide range of major and minor dental and skeletal irregularities. One of the specific irregularities that can be fixed by our oral and maxillofacial surgeons with orthognathic surgery is the misalignment of your jaw and teeth, which will improve your ability to chew, speak, and breathe. While orthognathic surgery is performed to correct functional problems, it can dramatically enhance your appearance as well.
If you have injuries or deformities of the face and head, craniofacial surgery can help improve their look and function. Our talented team of surgeons at Oral Facial Reconstruction and Implant Center can help you with craniofacial deformities by using years of experience and the latest technology available.
If you experience inadequate bone structure in the upper and/or lower jaws from injury, trauma, tumor surgery, or long-term denture wear, our oral reconstructive surgery can help.
If you have congenital deformities, our oral and maxillofacial surgeons can help restore your jaw and facial structures so that you can achieve normal function and appearance.
If you have a cleft lip or cleft palate, we can help repair them through specialized plastic surgery techniques, improving your ability to eat, speak, hear, and breathe while also granting you’re a more normal appearance and function.
Your treatment plan will be defined after a discussion by all the members of your treatment team. Your treatment team could include your orthodontist, your periodontist, your general dentist, your oral and maxillofacial surgeon and any other professional needed for your specific case.
