Jaw Surgery

Some irregularities, injuries, and misalignment of the jaws cannot be resolved by an orthodontist.

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

Orthognathic surgery can improve the shape and positions of the lower and upper jaw when an orthodontist alone cannot provide a solution to your needs:
upper jaw

Upper Jaw

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.

lower jaw

Lower Jaw

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.

Chin

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.

Dr. Gregory and his wife are great people. Saw him after hours for a locked jaw and he went above and beyond making me feel comfortable and making sure I understood what caused it/how to help it. Very friendly, very kind, very admirable. Glad I met him!

It was very smooth surgery and stayed numb long enough that I didn't really have a lot of pain. Most of my 7 kids had him take out their wisdom teeth and it all went well.

The Benefits

Undergoing corrective jaw surgery at our Logan or Garland offices can allow you to experience:

An Enhanced Appearance

Adjusting the alignment of your upper and lower jaw can achieve better facial symmetry and help you feel more confident in your appearance.

Improved Function

When 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 Breathing

Orthognathic 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

Below is a general overview of what to expect during orthognathic surgery. Depending on the type of procedure you need, we will offer a detailed explanation of your surgery during a consultation at our Logan or Garland offices.

Initial Consultation

Dr. Anderson will perform a full exam using digital x-rays and the latest imaging technology. He will discuss symptoms and your medical history, as well as any additional concerns you may have.

Anesthetic and Sedation

As with dental implant surgery, local anesthetic is administered to eliminate pain during the procedure. In most cases, we will also administer general anesthesia.

The Surgical Procedure

During the procedure, Dr. Anderson will create incisions inside the mouth in order to access and alter jawbone tissue. If any incisions outside the mouth are necessary, they will be created in a way that results in minimal and discreet scarring. 

Recovering from Surgery

Although this is an outpatient procedure, you may need a few hours of recovery and observation before you are cleared to go home. In general, it can take up to 12 weeks to become completely healed following jaw surgery. Depending on the extent of your surgery and other factors, Dr. Anderson will advise when to return to work, school, exercise, and other everyday functions.

Cost and Payment Options

Our Logan and Garland offices can work with you to make surgery affordable, whether we're placing dental implants or treating trauma to the face and mouth.

The Cost of Surgery

The cost of orthognathic surgery will vary from patient to patient depending on their needs. We'll provide an estimate of costs during the consultation, and can discuss potential alternatives as well.

Medicaid and Insurance

We accept Medicaid as well as most insurances. We will assist with the necessary documentation and paperwork. Be sure to check with your insurance provider since coverage and plans vary.

Financing Options

We offer in-office financing as well as CareCredit. This will break the total cost of your procedure into affordable monthly installments, with a reasonable interest applied to the total cost of care.

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.

Dr. Anderson and his staff have been excellent to me following a work accident that resulted in surgery and multiple follow ups. They have worked me in for a same day appointment every time I had a problem, and have always promptly answered my questions about the process or aftercare. I would recommend Dr. Anderson and his staff with the highest recommendation for both trauma related accidents or routine care for the level of care provided to me following a traumatic event. Thank you, Dr. Anderson and staff!
