SURGICAL ORTHOGNATHIC THERAPY
ABOUT SURGICAL ORTHOGNATHIC THERAPY
DO I NEED ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY?
Orthodontic treatment usually comes before orthognathic surgery. The purpose is to align teeth so that they fit correctly after surgery is performed. Orthodontic treatment continues for a time after surgery to bring teeth into their final, optimal positions for good function.
Children aged 9-15 who have all their adult teeth erupted are typically at ideal age for this type of treatment. The idea is to identify the needs for the surgery before the patient is done growing.
Surgical orthodontics may be necessary for someone whose upper and lower jaws, which hold the teeth, are out of position. Consequently, the upper and lower teeth don’t fit, impairing the ability to bite, chew, or speak. Your orthodontist will work in conjunction with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to position your jaws and teeth for optimal function. If you do not have your own oral surgeon in mind, Dr. Freedman has a list of familiar surgeons that he will refer you to.
Just like your custom result driven treatment plan, the price of your orthodontic treatment varies depending on your treatment plan.
After Dr. Freedman's consultation, our experienced treatment and financial coordinator will review the cost of the orthodontic side of treatment with you, answer all your questions regarding cost, payments, or financing and show you how easy it is to afford the smile your deserve. Village Orthodontics offers our patients affordable no interest payment plan options, we are partnered with most major PPO dental insurance carriers, and we offer discounts to patients who are able to pay for the treatment up front.
