An Easy and Effective Treatment

Like priorly stated, not all adults with orthodontic issues may need surgical orthodontics. However, in the case of skeletal growth patterns, injury, or birth defect, jaw surgery may be required to correct the issue. Surgical orthodontics is usually only recommended to treat adults, for one main reason.

In growing children, orthodontics is used to modify the size or shape of the jaw bone. It’s easier for orthodontics to modify this in children because they are still growing.

Their bones are still growing and moving, and in some cases, they’re not even fused yet. In adults, it’s a different story. Once your jaw bone stops growing it becomes increasingly hard to change the size and shape of it. This is when surgical orthodontics may become necessary.

As we know, surgical orthodontics is adjunctive in nature, meaning that Dr. Funk will be working with an oral surgeon if surgery is deemed necessary. Although Dr. Funk will not be performing the actual surgery, the orthodontic care both before and after the procedure will all be handled by us.

Dr. Funk will create a specifically designed treatment plan ensuring that you have the most comfortable treatment prior to surgery, and effective treatment afterwards, to help expedite your recovery process.
