Surgical Procedures

Occasionally a person's bite can not be corrected with Orthodontics alone.  Due to the size or position of a person's jaws, the orthodontist must enlist the assistance of an Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon to help align the bite.  Below are a few videos demonstrating procedures commonly used in conjunction with orthodontics to correct a person's bite.

Lower Jaw Advancement (Overbite)


Lower Jaw Setback (Underbite)


Upper Jaw Advancement (Underbite)


Upper Jaw Impaction (Open Bite or Gummy Smile)


Upper Jaw Expansion (Adult Crossbite and Crowding)
