What Is Orthognathic Surgery?
Orthognathic surgery, or corrective jaw surgery, treats and corrects dental and jaw abnormalities. The misalignment of the jaw and teeth can result in trouble performing routine activities such as talking, sleeping, or eating. When the jaw size or position is in need of treatment, surgery may be necessary.
Are You A Candidate?
In some cases, orthognathic surgery is not necessary because orthodontic treatment can correct the problem by itself. Dr. Howell utilizes the latest in digital imaging technology and decides if orthognathic surgery is a good fit for you. If you do happen to be a candidate for it, we will show you the functional and aesthetic benefits of an orthognathic surgery.
