What is Surgically Assisted Orthodontics?

Surgically Assisted Orthodontics is a new method of minimally invasive outpatient surgery aimed at speeding orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic treatment times can be reduced using distraction osteogenesis, a surgery that encourages the body to grow and produce new bone tissue.

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.
