Jaw Surgery with Invisalign® at Merna Tajaddod Orthodontics in Palo Alto

Welcome to Merna Tajaddod Orthodontics, your trusted partner for achieving the smile you've always dreamed of!

Before your orthognathic or corrective jaw surgery, your teeth have to be perfectly aligned in your upper jaw (maxilla) and lower jaw (mandible). If you're considering jaw surgery but wish to avoid traditional braces, we have an excellent solution for you: Invisalign treatment. Under the expert care of Dr. Merna Tajaddod, we combine the benefits of jaw surgery and Invisalign to help you achieve both a harmonious facial structure and a perfectly aligned smile. Your teeth will be aligned with Invisalign before for your upcoming jaw surgery with your oral surgeon of choice. 

Understanding Jaw Surgery: Who is it for?

Corrective jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a procedure designed to correct irregularities in the alignment of the upper jaw and lower jaw. When your upper jaw (maxilla) is not aligned with your lower jaw (mandible) it will make it difficult for you to bite, chew food, speak, and sleep. When the maxilla and the mandible are not aligned, your face will appear asymmetric and you may suffer from facial and dental deformities. 

Our specialized planning for jaw surgery is only for special circumstances – only adult patients whose jaws have stopped growing and developing, and who have significant misalignment between their upper and lower jaw. If you have uneven or asymmetrical jaws, orthodontic treatments for adults that merely focus on teeth alignment and minor jaw misalignment won't provide the comprehensive solution you need. That's where corrective jaw surgery comes in. If you believe a candidate for orthognathic surgery, schedule your complimentary consultation today!
