Jaw Surgery

At Sonneveld Orthodontics, we take great pride in ensuring our patients receive the best quality care for their smile. We provide a wide variety of treatment options to ensure your complete satisfaction. In addition to our exceptional Tinley Park braces and Invisalign care, Dr. Sonneveld is also highly proficient in treating patients who require corrective jaw surgery.

What is Corrective Jaw Surgery?

If you experience difficulty chewing, talking, or sleeping then you may require corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) to correct the problem. The procedure can identify and correct any abnormalities in the bone structure of your face, specifically the jaw bone and teeth. Not only can jaw surgery correct these issues, but it can also dramatically improve the function and appearance of your face. Here are just a few of the benefits of corrective jaw surgery:

  • Aligns the teeth and jaw into a more balanced position
  • Increases the functionality of the mouth and jaw
  • Improves overall bite
  • Enhances appearance of the face
  • Improves breathing and speech

How Does Jaw Treatment Work?

Dr. Sonneveld utilizes the most current digital imaging technology to minimize the overall treatment time and enhance the efficiency of the surgery. Our office only uses state-of-the-art materials that provide stability, reliability, and strength. Dr. Sonneveld works in conjunction with experienced oral surgeons who perform the corrective surgery and who utilize durable titanium plates and miniature solid screws that help ensure your procedure will be successful. This also reduces your downtime and allows you to return to your normal activities as quickly as possible.

Jaw surgery is performed in conjunction with traditional orthodontic treatment to ensure the most effective results. This treatment may be performed prior to and after the jaw surgery, and once the procedure has been completed, Dr. Sonneveld will remove the braces to reveal your brand new smile.
