Surgical Orthodontics

Surgical orthodontics is the combined treatment with braces and jaw surgery to correct bite problems that are beyond the ability of braces alone to correct.

Some indications are:

1. A very large overbite due to a small lower jaw

2. An underbite due to a small upper jaw, large lower jaw or a combination of both

3. A severely “gummy” smile

4. Severe back crossbites in adults

5. Jaw asymmetries

6. Cleft palates
