How do I know if I need surgical orthodontics?

Surgical orthodontics are needed when the lower jaw is too small or too big for the upper jaw. An orthodontic assessment is the best way of working out if this applies to you. During our orthodontic assessment, we will take note of your facial proportions, symmetry, positions of the teeth and requirements of the bite before recommending jaw surgery as part of your orthodontic treatment.  In many instances, especially in growing patients, we can avoid jaw surgery by using special appliances to encourage the jaw to grow correctly.
