In these cases, Dr. Gregory E. Anderson can perform corrective jaw surgery to improve the function of your lower and upper jaw.

Improve Form and Function
Maxillary osteotomy can resolve a bite that does not full close (open bite) or severe misalignment (crossbite). It can also correct underdevelopment of the mid-face for improved aesthetics.
Mandibular osteotomy can treat underbites and other malocclusion, as well as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Like upper jaw surgery, it can also have aesthetic benefits.
Genioplasty addresses naturally occurring irregularities or effects of injuries to the chin. In some cases, it can be performed for the sole purpose of revising the shape of the chin for improved aesthetics.

An Enhanced AppearanceAdjusting the alignment of your upper and lower jaw can achieve better facial symmetry and help you feel more confident in your appearance.
Improved FunctionWhen your teeth meet properly and comfortably, you can experience improved oral function, making it easier to chew and speak. In some cases, a surgical solution must be combined with orthodontics to achieve proper alignment.
Unobstructed BreathingOrthognathic surgery allows patients to maintain a clear airway during sleep. When less invasive methods fail, surgery can help you achieve restful sleep and avoid serious health conditions such as heart disease.

What to Expect
"I was visiting my 84 year old dad in Utah. He had an inflamed and swollen area in his upper left jaw. It was a Friday morning and I called Dr. Anderson's office to make an appointment and they got us in immediately that same afternoon. Dr. Anderson was very thorough and took his time to take steps to get my dad out of pain. His staff was very professional and caring. Excellent customer customer service by Dr. Anderson and his awesome team." Kelly Bridenstine

Our Sedation Options
Patients are often concerned that jaw surgery will be painful. Our office offers four forms of sedation/anesthesia to help patients relax and make the treatment virtually painless.
Local anesthesia is used to numb the mouth so that you don't feel the orthognathic procedure. Unlike IV sedation and general anesthesia, local anesthesia does not affect the mind and body. It cannot calm nerves, only eliminate pain.
Our oral surgeons will often recommend general anesthesia for orthognathic jaw surgery since it's such an extensive procedure. The patient is completely unconscious during the surgery, allowing for a virtually painless and anxiety-free experience.
IV sedation is often combined with local anesthesia. Similar to general anesthesia, IV sedation helps calm nerves. However, the patient is conscious throughout the procedure, even though they likely won't remember the treatment after surgery.
Nitrous oxide helps the mind and body relax but does not provide pain relief. Since nitrous oxide is the lightest form of sedation we offer, our oral surgeon won't recommend it for extensive procedures like jaw surgery.
See Which Sedation Option is Right for You
In practice since 1994, Dr. Gregory E. Anderson will use his experience as an oral surgeon to determine which sedation option is right for your jaw surgery. On top of providing thorough service and effective results, our fees are 20-25% less than surrounding dental offices in Logan and Garland, UT.

Five Star Patient Reviews "If I could give six stars, I would."
The staff here are incredible. As far as health coverage is concerned, they go above and beyond to get your procedure approved. Sandra was literally on the phone with my insurance company for three straight hours. She gets it done! It's refreshing to see a medical office work so hard on behalf of their clients. I would never have been able to afford this surgery out-of-pocket. If I could give six stars, I would.View on Google
