Sometimes orthodontic treatment alone is not enough to correct the jaw discrepancy. This is best determined during the initial orthodontic consultation. If the patient is done growing and a growth modification appliance will be ineffective, surgical orthodontics may be the only alternative to achieving the best results.
Surgical orthodontics requires an orthodontist and an oral maxillofacial surgeon teaming up to fit the teeth and jaws in the right way. The first step is having an orthodontic consultation, where Dr. Dosanjh will discuss your options with you.
