Dr. Crichigno and our team of highly trained orthodontic specialists will work with you to design a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs - whether that includes Invisalign, traditional braces, or orthognathic (jaw) surgery.

Orthognathic Surgery

Corrective jaw surgery, also called orthognathic surgery, can be used to treat and correct significant abnormalities of the facial bones - specifically the jaws and teeth. These abnormalities, if left untreated, can make routine activities difficult and painful, such as:

  • Chewing
  • Talking
  • Swallowing
  • Sleeping

With high tech digital imaging devices, Dr. Crichigno can make a detailed, informed diagnosis as the overall function and aesthetics of your jaw and bone structure and determine the potential benefits of orthognathic surgery. Surgery isn't always necessary, and can often be avoided if other orthodontic treatments or appliances are sufficient to correct the problem. However, if a problem like TMJ/TMD or sleep apnea is severe enough, it can sometimes call for orthognathic surgery.

Dr. Crichigno will work with you to provide you the best decision and determine the perfect treatment plan for your needs. Dr. Crichigno closely collaborates with some of the more highly regarded figures in oral surgery, and with this experienced and qualified network, we will ensure that you receive the absolute best in oral surgery.
