To Correct Severe Jaw and Facial Abnormalities
Surgical orthodontics is a combined treatment by Dr. Patel and an oral surgeon to correct severe jaw and facial abnormalities. Dr. Patel aligns the teeth in the jawbone, then the oral surgeon positions the jaws into a more normal position to allow the bite to come together in an ideal way.
This procedure results in the improved ability to chew, speak, and breathe. Dr. Patel embraces the latest in orthodontic technologies to reduce the overall need for surgical orthodontics, however it can still be an option in those severe bite problems.
