Orthognathic Surgery

Orthodontic Treatment in Enterprise, AL

At Wiregrass Orthodontics, we believe everyone deserves a beautiful, healthy smile, and we're proud to help patients throughout the Dothan and Enterprise, AL areas achieve one through quality orthodontic treatment. Our Dothan orthodontist, Dr. John P. Howell, works with patients individually to make treatment fit into their lifestyle – but we offer more than just braces and Invisalign. In some cases, achieving a great smile requires a more involved treatment course. That's where orthognathic surgery can help.

Jaw Surgery in Enterprise & Dothan

One of the most important parts of a great smile is the development of the jaw, and for some people, this doesn't always go as planned. Sometimes, the upper and lower jaw can grow at different rates, ultimately producing a difference in size and impairing bite function. This kind of abnormal jaw growth can cause problems with speech, chewing, breathing, and sleeping – and it can also cause abnormalities and problems in the smile.

Orthognathic (jaw) surgery can help to correct these bite problems. In concert with orthodontic treatment, we can use jaw surgery to change the alignment of the jaws, bringing them more in harmony with each other and improving both the appearance and function of the bite and smile. Whether you're suffering from underbite, overbite, or any other orthodontic problem, orthognathic surgery may be able to help you achieve a healthy smile and better facial symmetry.

Thanks to advancements in the science of orthodontics, jaw surgery is easier and more effective than ever before. At our practice, we use world-class materials and cutting-edge medical technology to improve the efficacy and convenience of jaw surgery. Computerized treatment planning helps us improve the predictability and success of jaw surgery, while advanced materials like titanium plates and miniature screws help to improve jaw stability while minimizing post-surgical recovery time.

In most cases, we can treat all bite problems through orthodontic treatment alone – but sometimes, jaw surgery is necessary for the health of the smile. And if that's the case for you, we're here to help.
