Misaligned jaws and insufficient space for your teeth can affect your appearance as well as your speech, breathing and eating. Corrective jaw surgery can help fix these conditions and improve overall facial appearance and tooth function.

The oral surgeons at The Dental Specialists have helped hundreds of patients throughout the Twin Cities improve their jaw alignment through surgery. Also known as orthognathic surgery, this procedure is often used in conjunction with braces to ensure your jaw is properly aligned and your teeth are straight. Our surgeons work collaboratively with our orthodontists and your general dentist to create the best treatment plan for your specific needs.

Corrective jaw surgery can help correct conditions that exist at birth, develop gradually over time or occur as a result of facial trauma. By using state-of-the-art technology, we deliver effective results that improve facial structure and correct common issues including:

  • Speech or breathing problems
  • Chronic jaw or TMJ pain
  • Difficulty in chewing, biting or swallowing
