Will Corrective Jaw Surgery Be Needed?

Dr. Fenderson will work together with your dentist and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon to determine whether you are a candidate for corrective jaw, or orthognathic surgery. If she believes surgery ought to be considered, and you are willing, she will offer you the names of the top quality Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons this area offers.

The Surgeon will determine which corrective surgical procedure is appropriate and perform the actual surgery. It is important to understand that your treatment will probably include orthodontics before and after surgery, and will take several years to complete. Dr. Fenderson and your Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon understand that this is a long-term commitment for you and your family. They will try to realistically estimate the time required for your treatment.

Corrective jaw surgery may reposition all or part of the upper jaw, lower jaw and chin. When you are fully informed about your case and your treatment options, you and your dental team will determine the course of treatment that is best for you.
