Orthognathic Surgery in Arvada, Thornton, Aurora, and Highlands Ranch
Though many common problems in tooth and jaw alignment can be treated with more traditional orthodontic techniques such as braces or Invisalign®, sometimes abnormalities of the jaw and facial bones are more serious and cause difficulty in chewing, talking, sleeping, and other routine activities.
In these cases, orthognathic (jaw) surgery may be necessary. Jaw surgery can correct these abnormalities, and when used in conjunction with other orthodontic treatments, will improve the functionality and the overall aesthetic appearance of the face.
We use only the latest in orthodontic technology. Our cutting-edge digital imaging systems can create a computer model to identify functional problems in the jaw and forecast the benefits of jaw surgery. Computer-aided treatment plans minimize treatment times and recovery periods, and ensure a more effective overall treatment.
Often, orthognathic surgery procedures will utilize state-of-the-art implants like titanium plates and miniature screws to provide long-lasting predictability, stability, and strength to your new jaw. These technological advances make treatment faster, easier, and more effective, which gets you back to your normal life faster than ever.
If orthodontic treatment is sufficient to correct the problem, we may not need to employ orthognathic surgery. Your doctor will work with you to discuss all your treatment options and determine the perfect orthodontic solution for you.
