Corrective Jaw Surgery

Corrective jaw surgery moves your teeth and jaws into positions that are more balanced, functional, and healthy. Whether your needs include improving your bite and function, appearance, or speech, corrective jaw surgery can have a dramatic and positive effect on your outlook on life. We are here to work together with you to help you achieve a beautiful, functional, pain-free smile that will last for the rest of your life.

Who needs corrective jaw surgery?

In some cases, your upper and lower jaws may have grown at different rates. Injuries and birth defects may also affect jaw alignment. While orthodontics can usually correct problems when only the teeth are misaligned, corrective jaw surgery may be necessary to correct misalignment of the jaws. If you suffer from any of the following conditions, you may be an excellent candidate for corrective jaw surgery:

  • Difficulty chewing, biting food, or swallowing
  • Chronic jaw or jaw joint (TMJ) pain and headache
  • Excessive wear of the teeth
  • Open bite (space between the upper and lower teeth when the mouth is closed)
  • Unbalanced facial appearance from the front or side
  • Facial injury or birth defects
  • Receding chin
  • Protruding jaw
  • Inability to make the lips meet without straining
  • Chronic mouth breathing and dry mouth
  • Sleep apnea (breathing problems when sleeping, including snoring)

Receiving treatment to correct any of the above conditions is a commitment, not only to your health, but to your happiness as well. While treatment, which may include surgery and orthodontic treatment, may take several years to complete, the results will last a lifetime. There is no reason to live with painful, uncomfortable jaw conditions. Contact our office to learn about the best treatment option for you, your needs, and your smile.

Every staff member from the receptionists to assistants to Dr. Blue were so incredibly friendly I thought I was at Disneyland at 7:30 in the morning! I was well taken care of. The interior design is very posh and unexpected for an orthodontist office! It was a great experience...would highly recommend! — Kelly

Dr. Blue and his staff make you feel like family. We have never had a day in that office where the staff was not happy, friendly and eager to help. They explain treatments, procedures and answer questions to the fullest each time we are there. We love them. — B.V.

I would definitely recommend Blue Orthodontics. Both my daughter and I are in braces. The staff is so friendly and accomodating, they coordinate our appointments together which makes life much easier. Dr. Blue himself is awesome..he always explains what they are doing and what the next steps in my treatment are going to be. — T.L
