There are times that the only way to correct a skeletal problem of the mouth is with jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery). If you have this situation, treatment is provided by a combination of Maxillofacial surgeons and the orthodontist. While there are times that the orthodontist can provide treatment that can compensate for the problems without surgery, true correction will still need the combined team effort.
You are encouraged to have a free consultation with us if you would like to know my opinion about your treatment options.
