Jaw Surgery

UntitledThere are times when orthodontics alone cannot correct the bite and align teeth. This can be due to a patients underlying skeletal structure that needs surgical manipulation in order for total correction. There are many reasons for surgical correction, but the two most common procedures carried out in our office is surgical advancement and surgical set back of the lower jaw. During your consultation we will go over all treatments options including alternative treatments to jaw surgery. If you and Dr. Ponikvar agree upon the surgical treatment plan, they will work will you and an oral surgeon to get you the results you deserve. Often time the process involves pre-surgical braces to prepare the teeth for surgery, followed by your specific surgery at the hospital with the surgeon, then post-surgical braces for fine tuning. This complex treatment is often intimidating but we are here to provide you support and answers to any questions you have throughout the entire process.
