Jaw surgery

There are a variety of conditions that can lead to a malocclusion or improper bite. Minor malocclusions can be corrected with braces alone, but in more severe cases (such as significant overbites or underbites, open bites, asymmetries, and "gummy" smiles), the upper or lower jaw or both may need to be surgically repositioned to allow proper fit and function of the teeth. This is called orthognathic jaw surgery and is typically done as part of a comprehensive orthodontic and surgical plan. Our surgeons will work closely with your orthodontist to plan and carry out the surgical treatment plan. These procedures are done in a hospital and usually require 1-2 days of hospitalization after the surgery.
