Treatments We Provide

Corrective Jaw Surgery

Surgery is done to remove excess bone and properly align the jaw. It is then held in place with small plates and screws. This can be done during and after growth.

Distraction Osteogenesis

In some cases a device can be placed on the jaw for bone “distraction.” This technique allows the body to grow its own bone and avoids the need for bone grafts.


Braces before or after surgery can complete the full recovery of teeth alignment. This ensures proper ability to chew and prevents future problems with oral health.
