Orthognathic Surgery

Improve your jaw alignment, enhance your facial features, and optimize oral functionality with our orthognathic surgical services at Trillium Aesthetic Facial Surgery in Ann Arbor, MI, and Plymouth, MI.

Understanding Orthognathic Surgery

Orthognathic surgery, also known as corrective jaw surgery, is a procedure designed to correct conditions of the jaw and face related to structure, growth, sleep apnea, TMJ disorders, malocclusion problems owing to skeletal disharmonies, or other orthodontic issues that cannot be easily treated with braces. By realigning the jaws into a more balanced and functional relationship, orthognathic surgery can improve your facial appearance, chewing, speaking, and long-term oral health.

Why Choose Trillium Aesthetic Facial Surgery for Orthognathic Surgery

At Trillium Aesthetic Facial Surgery, Dr. Ehland leverages her extensive experience and expertise to provide personalized, evidence-based, and safe orthognathic surgical treatments. Our team’s deep understanding of both aesthetics and function allows us to create balanced, natural-looking results while optimizing oral functionality. Our clinic is equipped with the latest technology, ensuring that you receive state-of-the-art care throughout your journey with us.

The Orthognathic Surgery Process

The journey to a more balanced and functional facial structure begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr. Ehland and an experienced orthodontist. This includes a comprehensive evaluation of your facial aesthetics, jaw function, and overall oral health. Sophisticated imaging technology is used to plan the surgery in detail, and you’ll be fully informed about every step of the process. The surgical procedure itself is carried out under general anesthesia. During the surgery, the upper jaw, lower jaw, and/or chin are precisely moved and securely fastened in their new, pre-planned positions.

Post-surgery, our dedicated team will guide you through the recovery process, providing detailed aftercare instructions and ongoing support to ensure optimal healing and the best possible outcome.

Benefits of Orthognathic Surgery

Orthognathic surgery brings about a range of benefits. It can dramatically improve chewing, speaking, and breathing functionality. Moreover, it often improves facial aesthetics, resulting in a more harmonious, balanced appearance and increased self-confidence. Many patients also experience relief from jaw discomfort and chronic headaches associated with jaw misalignment.
