Jaw Surgery


At Moore Orthodontics it is our number one priority to provide patients with not only a beautiful smile but a healthy one. This is why we are happy to be able to provide patients in the Bala Cynwyd and Mt. Airy areas of Philadelphia with orthognathic surgery. This is also often referred to as jaw surgery and is known as a corrective surgery. If you think that you or your child may be a candidate for orthognathic surgery please do not hesitate to contact one of our offices for more information.

What Exactly Is Orthognathic Surgery?

As we previously mentioned, corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.

How Does It Work?

Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times, recovery periods and the overall efficacy of your surgery. State-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength and predictability to your treatment. These advances in technology, procedures and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, thus allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.

Contact Our Mt. Airy Or Bala Cynwyd Office Today!

Orthognathic surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. Once you make an appointment to come in and see Dr. Moore for a consultation he will better tell you whether you are a candidate for surgery of if the problem can be treated through one of our orthodontic services. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact one of our offices. We hope to see you soon!
