Understanding orthognathic surgery

  • During your first visit, our orthodontist will conduct a thorough evaluation, including x-rays and 3D imaging, to understand your needs and plan your treatment.
  • Braces are often needed before surgery to align the teeth properly. This phase can last several months to ensure optimal positioning.
  • The surgery will consist of precise adjustments to the jaw bones, which may involve repositioning, reshaping, or lengthening.
  • Once your jaw has healed, final adjustments with braces or aligners will ensure that your teeth and jaw are perfectly aligned for optimal function and appearance.

Most patients experience significant improvements in their bite, facial symmetry, and overall quality of life following orthognathic surgery. The entire process, from initial consultation to final orthodontic treatment, can span 12 to 24 months, with the surgery itself being a crucial step in achieving long-term success.

Benefits of orthognathic surgery

Orthognathic surgery and non-surgical treatments

Orthognathic surgery addresses severe jaw discrepancies that cannot be corrected with orthodontic treatments alone. While non-surgical options like braces can realign teeth, they cannot reposition the jaws. Dr. Saghafi will help determine the best approach for your needs.

We offer various payment plans to make orthognathic surgery accessible. Our office accepts a wide range of insurance plans and provides interest-free financing options to accommodate your financial situation.
