What is Orthognathic Surgery?

Orthognathic surgery, or jaw surgery, corrects a misalignment of the upper and lower teeth for a broad spectrum of benefits. This surgery may be recommended by your dentist, orthodontist, or medical doctor to address concerns about your jaw function or appearance.

How We Do Orthognathic Surgery

At Facial Surgery Group, we are committed to using the most current surgical techniques and technology available. We use computer-aided design, 3D X-rays, and intraoral scanning to build a patient specific portfolio to plan surgical movements. We make custom plates and screws to cater to your individual needs. Most importantly, we do not wire your jaws shut after standard orthognathic surgery!

Patient Stories

  • I grew up without much dental care. I was embarrassed by my teeth. I guess that somewhere along the lines, I learned to hide my smile. Then I had kids and naturally, their needs came first; music lessons, sports, braces, college. When the last one graduated from college, my husband insisted that it was my turn. My new teeth are beautiful. My husband says it was worth every penny. He says, “Happy Wife, Happy Life”.

  • I was so afraid to have my tooth pulled that I didn’t sleep the night before. Everybody there was so nice and made me feel so comfortable that it was a piece of cake. I don’t know how to thank you enough.

  • I recently got my third implant over the last ten years from the Facial Surgery Group. Once again, all the staff I interacted with were professional, friendly and skilled at their jobs. I highly recommend them.
