Your orthodontic health is our number one concern here at Denise Nguyen Orthodontics and we’ll go above and beyond to do all we can to give you a healthy bite. With a wide array of orthodontic treatments, your orthodontist in Vienna, VA is capable of giving you your best smile possible. However, if orthodontic treatment won’t fix what’s ailing you, we may recommend that you undergo jaw surgery. While we don’t perform jaw surgery in our office, if we determine that it’s necessary we can refer you to a specialist who does.

What is Jaw Surgery?

Jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, is used to treat and correct abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically those of the jaws and the teeth. These abnormalities can often cause problems that are associated with talking, chewing, sleeping, and other routine activities. While orthognathic surgery can correct these problems, it may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can fix it on its own. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this may often be the case. Your orthodontist in Vienna, VA will help determine whether orthognathic surgery will be needed for you.

The Benefits of Modern Orthognathic Surgery

By using the latest in digital imaging technology, modern orthognathic surgery has become more efficient than ever. Computerized treatment planning can be used to minimize treatment times and recovery periods. State-of-the-art materials, like titanium plates and miniature screws, will provide strength, stability, and predictability to the treatment. These advances in technology, equipment, and procedures can reduce the post-surgical recovery time, allowing patients to return to their normal schedules much quicker after their surgery.
