Your Smile. Our Passion.

Orthognathic Surgery

Patients that have malocclusion are in need of orthodontic treatment. A patient with a malocclusion has crooked or crowded teeth and/or  misaligned bite. Your bite is the way that the upper and lower teeth line up with each other. If you have a proper bite, the upper teeth will sit slightly in front of the lower teeth. Often, patients have an underbite or an overbite. In an underbite, the lower teeth sit in front of the upper teeth. Patients with an overbite have upper teeth that are pushed too far forward.  Malocclusion can affect a patient’s confidence and their oral health. Crooked teeth can be difficult to care for, so those with malocclusion are often more prone to decay or other dental issues.

In many cases, malocclusion can be treated using simple orthodontic treatment. At times, however, Dr. Travis Fiegle, Dr. Katie Solomon and Dr. Gavin Fox may recommend orthognathic surgery in Beaufort, and Bluffton, South Carolina. Orthognathic surgery corrects misaligned bites. Our orthodontics will reconstruct the jaw by cutting the bone and repositioning the bone segments. This treatment is only necessary with severe bite problems.
