Surgical Treatment



Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, involves the correction of a wide range of minor and major jaw discrepancies using orthodontics in conjunction with oral and maxillofacial surgery. Both specialties are needed to treat these cases because both the teeth and jaws are not in proper alignment. The benefits of surgical orthodontics can be life-altering because of improved esthetics, and an enhanced ability to chew, speak, and even breathe. Dr. Ford has a great deal of experience working in coordination with oral surgeons to provide the best results possible.
