Surgical Orthodontics

Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, is used to treat severe instances of poor bites, jaw bone anomalies, and malocclusion. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is one of the nine recognized dentistry specialities, and it focuses on treating difficult craniofacial problems that include the mouth, jaw, face, and skull. If you require surgical orthodontics, Nadeau Orthodontics can coordinate with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

Adults who have bad bites or other problems with their teeth may be able to get help from surgery. After the age of 16, most women and men stop growing their jaws. The jaws of someone who wants to have orthognathic surgery must be done growing. When the jaws don’t line up properly and orthodontic treatment alone doesn’t work, you’ll need surgery. When the orthognathic surgery procedure is completed and the patient is healed, orthodontic braces will be used to move teeth into the right place and complete the treatment.

For many people, the most important thing about having orthognathic surgery is that they get a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts a long time. A bad bite, a misalignment, or a misalignment of the jaw can all be fixed with orthodontic treatment. Orthognathic surgery can help you regain your confidence and leave you smiling with confidence for years to come.
