Orthodontic treatment combined with jaw surgery | Before & After

Use the arrows to the left and right of the image or the circle navigation below to view our before & after gallery.

In a small percent of patients, jaw surgery (Orthognathic surgery) is an option in combination with orthodontic treatment for moderate-to-severe jaw problems that cannot be resolved with orthodontics alone. Jaw surgery realigns the jaws and teeth so they work properly and corrects cosmetic concerns.

Depending on the patient’s needs, surgery is performed on the upper jaw (maxillary osteotomy), lower jaw (mandibular osteotomy), or both. Surgery is completed entirely inside the mouth, leaving no scars on the chin, jaw or around the mouth.
