Orthognathic Surgery

Jaw Surgery in Fairbanks

The growth of your jaw is a steady process. Sometimes the growth of the upper and lower jaws can occur at different rates, causing a discrepancy in their size and function. Often these abnormalities cause difficulty with chewing, talking, sleeping, breathing and other routine activities. Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and teeth. Orthodontic treatment may also be used in conjunction with corrective jaw surgery to align the teeth appropriately. Although jaw surgery can dramatically improve your appearance, the goal is to correct functional problems.

Using the latest digital imaging technology, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes the treatment time and  recovery period while increasing the overall efficiency of your jaw surgery. State-of-the-art materials we use, such as titanium plates and miniature screws, provide:

  • Stability
  • Strength
  • Predictability
  • Reduced postsurgical recovery time

Orthognathic surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. Your Fairbanks orthodontist will determine whether orthognathic surgery is the appropriate treatment option for you.
