Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery.
Computerized treatment planning minimizes:
- Treatment times
- Recovery periods
State-of-the-art materials (such as titanium plates and miniature screws) provide:
- Reduced post-surgical recovery time
Orthognathic surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. Dr. Fulcher will determine if orthognathic surgery is the appropriate treatment option for you.
