Set the Stage For Your Attractive Smile

Some problems require more than standard orthodontics. Surgical care may be the first step in correcting your smile issues such as:

  • Protruding Lower Jaw – This looks similar to an underbite but is a problem with the position of your jaw instead of the alignment of your teeth.
  • Weak Chin – This is the opposite of a protruding lower jaw. Visually, it looks similar an overbite, but again, the real issue is with the location of your jaw.
  • Open Bites – An open bite exists when you have a gap between your upper and lower teeth even when your mouth is closed.
  • TMJ Disorder – How your lower jaw aligns with the other bones of your face can be a factor in TMJ disorder. Surgery can be part of your treatment for TMJ problems. This can alleviate headaches, jaw and facial pain, and stiffness in your jaw.

Standard orthodontic care and dentofacial orthopedics are by far our preference for straightening smiles. However, genetic factors, birth defects, or an injury all can play a role in dental and facial development and may require more complex solutions. Our team is ready to work with you to alter your facial structure so that you can have the smile of your dreams.
