Corrective Jaw Surgery & TADs

Corrective jaw surgery, also known as surgical orthodontics or orthognathic surgery, treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Corrective jaw surgery in conjunction with orthodontic treatment can help improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.

In some cases, orthognathic surgery may be necessary if orthodontic treatment alone cannot correct the functional issues with your smile. Dr. Bateman will discuss your overall treatment plan and work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to determine if you are candidate for corrective jaw surgery. 

Temporary Anchoring Devices (TADs)

Temporary Anchoring Devices (TADs) provide a non-surgical option for realigning teeth and jaws in a more conservative, less painful way than jaw surgery. In many cases, TADs can eliminate the need for jaw surgery and other aggressive procedures. Dr. Jeremy Bateman is an expert in placing the tiny TAD implants that can help close spaces where teeth are missing, eliminate the need for headgear, enable “extreme” tooth movement and treat bite problems that traditionally required surgery.
