When Is Surgical Orthodontics Necessary?

Not all conditions can be treated with functional appliances. Surgical orthodontics may be necessary to correct jaw abnormalities and severe cases of poor bite and malocclusions which aren’t suitable for treatment with orthodontic appliances. Dr. Dierkes will perform a full consultation to evaluate the extent of your issues and determine if surgical orthodontics is the right form of treatment for you.

Who Performs Surgical Orthodontics?

Surgical orthodontic procedures are performed by an oral maxillofacial surgeon. If surgery is needed, you’ll be referred to an oral maxillofacial surgeon for treatment. Dr. Dierkes works alongside oral maxillofacial surgeons to provide his patients with desirable smiles and excellent facial symmetry.

About the Surgical Procedure

Your surgical orthodontics procedure may be performed in either a hospital or outpatient office. Minimal risks are associated with surgery, which your surgeon will discuss with you. Your surgeon will also inform you of what will take place during the procedure and what you should expect during recovery. Surgical orthodontics offers many benefits, far outweighing the risks and dramatically improving the structure of your face and total dental health.

Why Choose Dr. Dierkes?

Dr. Dierkes is committed to providing patients with a naturopathic approach to orthodontic, TMJ, and facial esthetic treatments. His “All Things Considered” approach to orthodontic treatment carefully considers the relationships among teeth, bone, muscles, TMJ, airway, food allergies, nutritional deficiencies and excesses, and endocrine balances and how each will affect the treatment of the patient. With a holistic approach to the care he provides, Dr. Dierkes believes in patient education and effective communication which allows each patient to make informed choices about their care and treatment as well as fosters a positive working relationship between doctor and patient. While the naturopathic approach may take more time, the care is better for the patient, and results extend beyond orthodontics and facial esthetics to improve the patient’s overall health.
