Jaw Surgery


Corrective Jaw Surgery

At the practice of Dr. Ian Lennard, we provide a multitude of orthodontic services including but not limited to Invisalign®palate expansion and jaw surgery. Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems, and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.

Digital Imaging Technology

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 and the overall efficacy of your surgery. Titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength and predictability to your treatment. These advances in technology, procedures and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, thus allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.
