Jaw Surgery Treatment
Sometimes there is a severe imbalance between the size or shape of the jaws, resulting in difficulty eating, speaking, uneven wear of the teeth or even sleep apnoea. A protrusive or retruded jaw can also cause an imbalance in the appearance of the face, smile and chin. If this is the case, orthodontic treatment alone can be insufficient to fully correct the alignment of the teeth or the bite and achieve an ideal aesthetic outcome.
In these instances, orthodontic treatment can be combined with jaw surgery to achieve dramatic improvements in the bite or to restore an aesthetic balance to the face and smile. We work in a team approach with oral and maxillofacial surgeons to achieve the best results.
