If you need jaw surgery, you don’t have to get braces to achieve a straight smile - you can use Invisalign® treatment! At Todor Orthodontics, we help many surgical patients achieve their dream smile using Invisalign.
What is jaw surgery - and who is it best for?
Jaw surgery, which is also called orthognathic surgery, is a surgical treatment used to correct misalignments in the jaw bones. Jaw surgery is only performed on adult patients whose jaws have naturally stopped growing.
Jaw surgery may be necessary if you have uneven or asymmetrical jaws, since orthodontic treatment for adults only adjusts your teeth - not your jaws!
What orthodontic issues
can jaw surgery treat?
Jaw surgery can be used to treat:
- Open bites
- Underbites and overbites
- Chronic mouth breaking
- Facial asymmetry
- Uneven wear on teeth
- TMJ issues
- Sleep apnoea
- Chewing and speech difficulties
- Facial injuries
How does jaw surgery work with Invisalign® treatment?
If you want a beautifully symmetrical face - and straight teeth, you need to undergo orthodontic treatment along with your jaw surgery. Dr. Todor can design a custom Invisalign® treatment plan for you that will help prepare your smile for jaw surgery.
Then, after surgery, your teeth will be almost completely in proper alignment! They will just need little tweaks to achieve that beautiful, even look you're looking for.
