We carefully evaluate each individual patient to determine the most appropriate orthodontic approach to achieve the best possible results. If surgical orthodontics is needed, you can trust our Marietta practice for a superior experience.
Surgical Correction for Jaw Misalignment
Surgical orthodontics typically involve a procedure to correct abnormal jaw placement. This allows the jaw bones to properly align and can consequently improve speech and chewing as well as the aesthetics of a patient’s smile. Surgical orthodontics is only used when the jaw bones have fully formed, which is generally after the age of 16 for females and 18 for males. It is important to realize that surgical orthodontic treatment is not a substitute for braces but is often used in conjunction with braces. Adults may be asked to wear braces before or after surgery.
