Jaw Surgery

Orthognathic surgery is surgery performed on the bones of the jaws to change their positions. Orthognathic surgery is corrective facial surgery where deformities of the jaw exist. It may be indicated for functional, cosmetic, or health reasons. It is surgery commonly done on the jaws in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, which straightens the teeth. Facial imbalances are often present and sometimes recognized by the untrained eye. People with large jaws, or chins, or small jaws or chins, teeth which don't fit together, are examples of facial characteristics that may be improved by orthognathic surgery. Sometimes the differences are so subtle that only a trained specialist can recognize them. The orthodontist or oral maxillofacial surgeon recognizes the need for surgical repositioning of segments of facial bones or teeth. An evaluation by such a specialist will often easily determine if you are a candidate for this type of surgery. For more information log on to http://www.argyleassociates.com

Jaw Surgery

Some of our patients may have significant skeletal and/or soft tissue discrepancies that could lead to bite problems, limited jaw function, pain or facial imbalance. Certain types of these problems cannot be overcome by conservative orthodontic treatment alone. Under these circumstances, Dr. Milne will work together, as a team, with an oral surgeon (a dental
specialist in surgical treatment of the jaws) to align the teeth, correct the jaw discrepancy, improve function and improve facial balance.


Must Watch

Dentists moonlighting as orthodontists can make for costly smile.
