Corrective Jaw Surgery

One third of Americans have significant misalignment of their teeth.

Most people can be treated with braces, but some misalignments are so severe that surgery is required. Our surgeons are some of the most experienced in western North Carolina in treating teens and adults with facial and jaw abnormalities.

What is corrective jaw surgery?

The size and position of your jaws dictate the position of your teeth. If your facial bones do not grow correctly, your teeth will not fit together properly. Abnormal facial growth can lead to upper or lower jaws that are too small, too large, or asymmetric.

Corrective jaw surgery is done to fix abnormally positioned upper or lower jaws. This treatment can dramatically improve your ability to chew, speak, or breathe. It can also have a significant impact on your appearance and confidence.
