Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping, and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.
Your New York orthodontist uses the latest in digital imaging technology to demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times, recovery periods and the overall efficacy of your surgery. State-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength and predictability to your treatment. These advances in technology, procedures and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, so that patients can return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.
In some cases, jaw surgery can be avoided if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. New York braces along with the latest advances in orthodontics makes this possible for some patients. Your Riverdale orthodontist will determine whether orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you.
