A multi-disciplinary approach for skeletal and cosmetic change.
Orthognathic, or jaw, surgery may be recommended in addition to orthodontic treatment to correct substantial skeletal discrepancies of the upper and lower jaws. These irregularities can manifest as functional issues or cosmetic concerns. Working along with some of Atlanta's top oral and maxillofacial surgeons, orthognathic surgery in conjunction with comprehensive orthodontic treatment can correct these skeletal problems while improving overall facial aesthetics. Surgical cases typically require pre- and post-surgical orthodontics to prepare the bite for surgery and provide a precise end result, respectively. The good news is that orthognathic surgery is not always required when a skeletal discrepancy exists. Depending on the severity of skeletal condition, orthodontic treatment alone can provide beautiful results.
