Surgical Orthodontics

(Braces with Jaw Surgery)

In many cases the upper and lower jaw bones do not match in size, proportion and length to each other causing bite problems. Examples of such cases are severe overjet cross bite and underbite. One important thing to know is that the braces by themselves cannot change the size of the jaw bones especially in adults. In such cases one may benefit from a treatment of orthodontic treatment and jaw surgery. The orthodontic treatment is provided by Dr. Angolkar and the jaw surgery is preformed by an oral surgeon. Advancement in surgical techniques make this coordinated treatment between two specialties highly successful. Here are some examples of surgical orthodontics.
