Corrective Jaw Surgery
Most smiles are started by another smile.
Occasionally the relationship between the teeth and jaws presents us a more serious orthodontic problem. At Decoteau Orthodontics we will always opt for a conservative approach to your orthodontic treatment. Sometimes, however, we recommend surgery in conjunction with orthodontic treatment in order to provide you with the healthiest and most stable bite, and the most beautiful smile. Surgical orthodontics, or orthognathic surgery, is a type of orthodontic treatment used to correct severe jaw asymmetries, imbalances, and abnormalities. If you need surgical orthodontics, we will work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who specializes in orthognathic surgery to ensure that you receive the best possible care.
