Orthognathic Surgery

v-braces2Dr. Glass and his friendly team would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our website. At Glass Orthodontics, our goal is to provide our patients with the most efficient and effective orthodontic care in a comfortable yet fun environment. Although our offices are located in Daphne, Bay Minette and Atmore, we happily serve patients from the Fairhope area of Alabama as well. A lot of people may not be aware that orthodontics is more than just creating a healthy smile. It also corrects problems with the jaw and bone structure. That is why we offer orthognathic surgery, otherwise known as jaw surgery, at our Daphne, Bay Minette and Atmore locations.

What Is The Purpose Of Jaw Surgery?

Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems, and in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.

How Does It Work?

Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times, recovery periods and the overall efficacy of your surgery. State-of-the-art materials, such as titanium plates and miniature screws, provide stability, strength and predictability to your treatment. These advances in technology, procedures and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, thus allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.

Are You A Candidate?

Orthognathic surgery may be unnecessary if traditional orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. We will determine if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you once you are evaluated by Dr. Glass.
