Small dental and jaw discrepancies can often be corrected with orthodontic treatments like braces. However, for some individuals, the jaw and teeth misalignments can be more severe, requiring a comprehensive approach to achieve a healthy, functional bite with aesthetically pleasing facial proportions. This is where orthognathic surgery, a combined orthodontic and surgical treatment, can play a transformative role. If you are facing significant malocclusion (misaligned bite) or uneven growth disturbances (an atypical pattern of growth or development in the teeth), our expert team at Donlevy, Estess and Lohiya Oral Surgery Group in Los Angeles’ South Bay can help you regain proper jaw alignment and improve your overall oral health.
Dental implants (tooth implants) have an impressive track record for their long-lasting results. With proper care and maintenance, they can potentially last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective tooth replacement solution in the long run. You can take care of your dental implants the same way you care for your natural teeth, with twice daily brushing and flossing.
During your initial consultation with our board-certified surgeons, we will take the time to thoroughly assess your condition and discuss the available treatment options. Understanding the intricacies of your case is essential for determining whether orthognathic surgery is the right choice for you. Our team works closely with your orthodontist to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific malocclusion and outlines the surgery's timeline and process.
To ensure the success of your orthognathic surgery, precise planning is crucial. Using custom models and advanced virtual planning software, we calculate the exact type and degree of movements required for your surgical solution. Dr. Donlevy, Dr. Lohiya and Dr. Estess are board-certified diplomates of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
