Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.
At Chenin Orthodontics, we explore options to avoid orthognathic surgery when orthodontic treatment alone can correct the problem. Because our doctors utilize the latest advances in orthodontics, this is frequently the case. Dr. Stephen and Dr. David Chenin thoroughly examine your unique situation and determine if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you.
Using the latest in digital imaging technology, Chenin Orthodontics will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times, recovery periods and the overall efficacy of your surgery. State-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength and predictability to your treatment. The advances in technology, procedures and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, thus allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.
At Chenin Orthodontics, we have over 25 years of orthognathic surgery experience. If it is determined that orthognathic surgery combined with orthodontic treatment is the best option for you, then you can rest assured that you will received the most comprehensive and highest quality treatment possible here with us.
