What is Corrective Jaw Surgery?

Jaw misalignment can have a significant impact on both your oral health and overall well-being. At Los Robles Oral Surgery, nestled in the serene town of Los Gatos, CA, we understand the importance of addressing jaw discrepancies to restore proper function, aesthetics, and comfort. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Roger Lau, our esteemed oral surgeon, we offer corrective jaw surgery and innovative corrective jaw surgery with clear aligners, providing comprehensive solutions for jaw alignment issues.

Corrective jaw surgery: Also known as orthognathic surgery, is a surgical procedure designed to correct misalignments of the jaws. Jaw discrepancies can lead to issues such as difficulty in chewing, speaking, and breathing, as well as aesthetic concerns. Corrective jaw surgery involves precise adjustments to the bones of the upper and lower jaw, bringing them into proper alignment. This procedure not only enhances function but also improves facial symmetry and aesthetics.

Corrective Jaw Surgery with Clear Aligners: Corrective jaw surgery with clear aligners combines the benefits of orthognathic surgery with the convenience and aesthetics of clear aligner treatment. This innovative approach utilizes clear aligners, such as Invisalign®, to gradually move the teeth into their proper positions before and after the surgical procedure. By using clear aligners in conjunction with surgery, patients can achieve optimal jaw alignment while also achieving a straighter, more harmonious smile.
