Correction Jaw Surgery
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.
Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will 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, thus allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.
Orthognathic surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. We will determine if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
During your initial visit, once you’ve been assessed as a suitable candidate, our dentist will prepare your front surface of your teeth to accommodate the veneers with simple roughening or reshaping. Once your teeth are prepared, a precise impression will be taken of your teeth. This will be used to fabricate your personal porcelain veneers so they fit securely to the tooth surface. You will be provided with a temporary veneer for duration of a week to 10 days.
On your next visit, your custom-made porcelain veneers will be available for your inspection, and will then be bonded to the existing tooth, leaving you with a bright, white, youthful looking smile that you desire. With good oral care, a porcelain veneer could last well up to 10 years.
