Orthognathic Surgery Orthodontics in Palo Alto

At Merna Tajaddod Orthodontics in Palo Alto, we understand that every orthodontic case is unique and every patient benefits from a customized orthodontic treatment.

While most misalignments can be corrected with braces or Invisalign, there are instances where the teeth and jaws do not fit together correctly and braces or Invisalign can’t achieve ideal orthodontic results.

While we always strive to create treatment plans without surgery, there are malocclusions that will benefit from a combination of orthodontic treatment and orthognathic surgery in order to achieve optimum long lasting results. In some instances when your jaw bones are not aligned then your teeth do not fit together and orthognathic surgery should be considered. 

When you are young and your jaws are still growing, it's easier to correct these problems with braces or Invisalign. But for adults, if your jaws need to be moved, you have to have orthognathic surgery combined with braces or Invisalign treatment.

Orthognathic Surgery Combined with Braces

Orthognathic surgery is used when the upper and lower jaws are not aligned correctly. Regular braces and dental treatments can't fix these kinds of problems. A combination of braces or Invisalign and orthognathic surgery will not only align your teeth but also your bite and occlusion will be more functional, making your face more balanced and in good proportions. At Merna Tajaddod Orthodontics in Palo Alto, we ensure that every patient receives exceptional care from start to finish and hence we recommend orthognathic surgery combined with orthodontics for some patients.

The Benefits of Jaw Surgery

Jaw surgery, or orthognathic surgery, is a transformative solution that corrects jawbone irregularities and improves overall facial symmetry. The benefits of this type of surgery go beyond aesthetics, positively impacting speech, breathing, digestion, and oral health. Dr. Tajaddod and her dedicated orthodontic team in Palo Alto work closely with patients, determining whether they are a candidate for jaw surgery and crafting a personalized orthodontic treatment plan that aligns with the surgical procedure.

Orthodontic Treatment and Corrective Jaw Surgery 

Jaw surgery and orthodontic treatment go hand in hand at Merna Tajaddod Orthodontics. Before the surgical procedure, we initiate your treatment with Invisalign or braces, ensuring that teeth are positioned correctly for ideal alignment of your teeth, and upper and lower jaws post-surgery. By ensuring your teeth are optimally placed, we enable the oral surgeon to achieve precise jaw positioning during the orthognathic surgery.

Transforming Smiles, Creating Healthy Bites 

Orthognathic surgery provides many benefits, ranging from reducing uneven wear on teeth and correcting severe open-bites , under-bites , overbites and to alleviating chronic mouth breathing and enhancing facial symmetry. It's also proven to provide relief for TMJ-related issues, aid in sleep apnea symptoms, and improve fundamental functions like chewing, swallowing, digestion, and speech. Whether you're seeking improved comfort or aiming to address a receding or protruding jaw, orthognathic surgery in Palo Alto can be the key to unlocking your dream smile.
