Dental abnormalities, bad bites (malocclusion), and crooked teeth are usually corrected by an orthodontist.
Abnormalities of the jaw are usually corrected by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
When both conditions exist, it is common to find an orthodontist and oral surgeon working together to correct the deformity.
This collaborative approach to complex dental/facial problems is ensured to provide better oral health for thousands of adults and children which are rewarded with straight teeth, bright smiles, and facial symmetry – a beauty of shape, form, and position.
There are a wide variety of causes of jawbone discrepancies – heredity, trauma, or other developmental problems.
Most commonly corrected problems include:
- The protruding or detruding chin.
- Gummy smile.
- Severe upper and lower teeth protrusion.
- Overall elongation of the face.
THE MOST LASTING REWARD IS A MORE BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHIER, AND HAPPIER YOU!
