Corrective Jaw Surgery

If you were considering having orthodontics and jaw surgery you might have a number of questions you would like answered.

Could I need Jaw Surgery?

In order to correct the position of your teeth and provide a functioning bite and pleasing dental smile,the supporting bones of your face (your jaw bones) must be in the correct alignment. If this is not the case and you have a "mis-match of your jaw alignment, then orthodontics alone will not correct your bite and smile.

Should you wish to consider having this treatment option then you can have a consultation at Lowell Medical where you will be fully assessed and given plenty of time to allow you to make an informed decision

If I need jaw surgery, why do I also require orthodontics?

If the jaws are to be moved into the correct position, it is important your teeth are moved so that they will meet properly after surgery.
