Surgical Orthodontics

Comprehensive Care for Your Healthiest Smile

In certain cases, Dr. Karl may recommend surgical orthodontics in Grand Rapids, MI, to achieve a healthy and well-aligned smile.

Dr. Karl will formulate a treatment plan, consult with local top surgeons, coordinate the necessary referral with the oral surgeon, and oversee the entire process to ensure you have a safe, comfortable experience. That includes conducting any pre-and post-operative orthodontic procedures that you may need.

When Do You Need Surgery?

Surgical orthodontics, also known as jaw surgery or orthognathic surgery, is typically needed if your oral health, function, and appearance are affected by problems that cannot be corrected through more conservative treatments. It may be needed to correct abnormalities in the teeth, jaws, or facial bones and can help:

  • Restore jaw function to improve eating, speaking, chewing, or other routine activities 
  • Relieve sleep apnea by realigning the jaws & teeth to open up the airway
  • Create space for incoming teeth
  • Improve facial profile 
  • Improve oral appearance
  • Facilitate later orthodontic treatment
  • Improve open bite
  • Reduce grinding or excessive wearing of teeth
