What Is Corrective Jaw Surgery?
Corrective jaw surgery moves the upper or lower jaw to balance the teeth, bite, and facial proportions.
This surgery can help resolve difficulties chewing, speaking abnormalities, TMJ pain, excessive tooth wear, facial injury, unbalanced facial appearance, and chronic mouth breathing.
Am I a Candidate?
If you’ve noticed jaw pain, underbite, overbite, or a misalignment in the way your teeth fit together, schedule a consultation today. Dr. Henry will work with you to determine if orthognathic surgery is the best option to resolve these issues and improve your health.
What Should I Expect?
At Henry Advanced Orthodontics, we start by using the latest digital imaging technology to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and successful treatment. We also use nothing less than the strongest materials, including titanium plates, to fortify your jaw, correct your bite, and improve the appearance of your facial profile.
For most patients, treatment begins with orthodontic therapy. The surgery itself will be completed under anesthesia for your maximum comfort. After surgery, most patients are able to return to work or school after 10-14 days and have healed completely after 6-8 weeks.
Talk to An Expert.
Not only do both my children go to Dr Henry’s but I do as well. We are all treated with kindness by a staff that’s very friendly and patient. Juggling each of our own needs, personalities and tolerance to the "adjustments", I know we are in the best hands in St Johns County.
We are only a few months into our first kid's treatment but are very happy so far! Easy to get in for an appointment, never have to wait long and the office staff is super friendly and professional! Can't wait to see how good my son's teeth look in about a year! I was also very impressed that Dr Henry didn't force early treatment for my daughter but took a wait & see approach...the questionable tooth shifted and that conservative approach saved us a couple thousand dollars. She will still need braces and we will definitely be using Dr Henry!
Dr. Henry has a great way of making visits a fun adventure for my son. He always looks forward to going for his check ups. Wonderful staff all around!
I love going to Henry Advanced Orthodontics! Dr Henry is very good at what he does and my daughter loves going to the orthodontist! How many parents can say that? His staff are the nicest people and treat everyone like they are family! 100% recommend to anyone needing orthodontic care!
