Orthognathic Surgery

If you have ever visited McDaniel Orthodontics at our Chattanooga, Jasper or Cleveland office then you know our patients are the top priority. Not only do the doctors strive to create beautiful smiles for their patients but also healthy smiles. When people think of orthodontics most of the time they imagine months in metal braces in order to get a beautiful smile. Although the result is a beautiful smile, that is not the only goal of orthodontic treatment. In some cases, it is not only tooth structure that needs to be restructured but also the jaw structure. This is why we are happy to be able to offer orthognathic surgery or jaw surgery consultations for patients in need of this type of treatment.

Jaw Surgery Consultation At You Chattanooga Orthodontic Office

Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile. Once we have determined that you are a candidate for jaw surgery we will refer you to one of the talented orthognathic surgeons in the area.

The Orthognathic Surgery Process

Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times, recovery periods and the overall efficacy of your surgery. State-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength and predictability to your treatment. These advances in technology, procedures and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, thus allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.
