Jaw Surgery

Malocclusions can be so severe as to involve not only the dentition but also the supporting jawbones, causing a dentofacial deformity. Correction of such malocclusions is most stable when utilizing a combination of dentistry, orthodontics and orthognathic (jaw) surgery. Unbalanced facial proportions and profiles are accounted for in your overall treatment plan to optimize masticatory function, arthrokinetic/TMJ function and facial esthetics.

TMJ and Orthognathic Surgery:
Many dentofacial or dentoskeletal malocclusions are caused by a TMJ pathology that may require treatment prior, simultaneously or after orthognathic surgery. These TMJ pathologies causing facial asymmetries and malocclusions include degenerative joint disease (severe arthritis), progressive/idiopathic condylar resorption, condylar hyperplasia and a benign condylar tumor.

Sleep Apnea and Orthognathic Surgery:
Bimaxillary (upper and lower jaw) advancement is an excellent surgical option to reduce the effects of severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and is reserved for those who fail to improve with or cannot tolerate a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine.
