Orthognathic Surgery
 

When an adult patient has a severe jaw discrepancy such as a protruding or receding upper or lower jaw, an orthodontist may recommend orthognathic surgery. This surgery is performed by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon to shorten or lengthen one or both jaws, so that they are in normal relationships.  The orthodontist first places braces and aligns the teeth so  they will fit together properly when the jaws are remodeled. The braces are left on the teeth while the surgeon performs the surgery in a hospital under general anesthesia. The orthodontic treatment is then continued for a few months to finalize the correction. This treatment corrects the teeth and jaws and also greatly improves the patient's facial features.

Dr. Rushing has treated many patients with orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. The patients are very happy with their new smiles, new bites, and new facial features, and they report that the surgery and recovery are not especially difficult. Click Surgery for more information.
