If your jaws don’t meet correctly and your teeth don’t seem to “fit” with your jaws, you may need more intensive care that involves corrective jaw surgery. Jaw problems can cause issues with biting, which in turn make eating difficult. Other concerns around jaw problems may be appearance-based.
Whether your jaw issues are due to problems with the growth of your bones and teeth since childhood or due to an injury to your face, we have the tools to reposition your jaw to create a more balanced appearance that works in harmony with the joints, teeth, and muscles.
The process of receiving corrective jaw surgery involves the combined efforts of an orthodontist and oral surgeon. We’ll begin by straightening your teeth through orthodontic care like braces to move them into the correct position for the bite you’ll have after corrective jaw surgery. Following that treatment, your jaws will be repositioned using corrective jaw surgery, which involves reshaping your jaws and possibly other facial bones to form a better bite and a more pleasing appearance.
