Advanced technologies with faster healing

Thanks to advancements in both diagnostic tools and surgical procedures, treatment outcomes and recovery times have vastly improved. New digital imaging technologies allow dentists to construct accurate models of a patient’s jaw. These allow dentists to more precisely pinpoint trouble areas and devise a computerized treatment plan. At the same time, patients are able to see a projection of their after-surgery results.

In addition to these advanced diagnostic techniques, modern orthognathic surgery relies on innovative methods and materials. During the procedure, titanium plates and miniature screws are inserted to secure your jaw bones into their new positions while providing strength, stability, and predictability to your treatment. As a result, patients enjoy several key benefits:

  • Shorter treatment times
  • Faster healing and recovery
  • Restoration of jaw’s form and function

These advantages allow patients to resume normal activities soon after surgery. Keep in mind, however, that orthodontic therapies may be able to correct your condition without the need for surgical procedures. During your consultation, we will determine if orthognathic surgery is the best treatment option for you.
