Orthognathic surgery is a surgery meant to correct a wide range of minor and major skeletal and dental irregularities, including the misalignment of the teeth and jaws. Our skilled orthodontist, Dr. Doug Jensen is proud to offer orthognathic surgery in McKinney, Texas, to improve your oral health and help you reach the healthy, functional and beautiful smile you deserve.
Typically, Dr. Doug Jensen can fix the majority of problems with orthodontic treatment, but when the patient suffers problems with jaw formation and the misalignment of the jaw bones, he opts for surgical intervention to provide the best results possible. Dr. Jensen is happy to work with a specialist in orthognathic surgery to reposition the upper and/or lower jaw to obtain better balance and harmony in the middle and lower thirds of the face. This can help improve the jaw relationships and also help achieve a proper and effective interlocking of the teeth for long-term function and the least wear and tear on the teeth as possible.
You might benefit from orthognathic surgery if abnormalities of the teeth, jaws and facial bones are making it difficult to speak, chew, eat, sleep and perform other routine activities. You might also benefit from this treatment if it can improve your oral appearance or even improve your entire facial profile. With the help of top-of-the-line techniques and tools, Dr. Jensen can help you achieve the health and results you want.
