Surgical Orthodontics

Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a type of treatment used to correct severe cases that include bad bites, jawbone abnormalities, and malocclusion. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is one of the nine recognized dental specialties, and this work by maxillofacial surgeons focuses on treating complex craniofacial cases that involve the mouth, jaw, face, and skull. If you require surgical orthodontics, we will work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to ensure that you receive the best care possible.
