Concord Orthodontic Surgery And Treatments
It’s never too late to enjoy a healthy smile
Our surgical and orthodontic treatments
Most people’s jawbones grow until they reach the ages of 16-18. Patients over these ages whose jaws don’t line up correctly often suffer from misaligned teeth, serious biting issues, and even self-esteem problems.
In those cases, orthodontic treatments are usually not enough. They need a combination of surgical and orthodontic treatments (like metal, ceramic braces, or Invisalign) to solve the problem. This combination allows us to move the jaws to their ideal position and strengthen the teeth to achieve a beautiful and healthy smile.
Some of the issues that we can correct using this approach are:
- Overbite, underbite, and other bite problems
- Severe malocclusion (misalignment of upper and lower teeth)
- Jaw abnormalities
- Facial asymmetry
- TMJD (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction)
Do you suffer from any of these conditions? Start now with a free initial consultation — no referral needed!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need surgery for my jaws?
Why do I need to treat biting/misalignment problems?
Orthodontic issues need to be addressed as soon as possible. When your upper and lower jaws are not properly aligned, it can lead to several problems, including speech, chewing, and aesthetic issues. They can also put you at a higher risk of suffering from sleep apnea and TMJD.
What should I expect after jaw surgery?
Will I have any scars after jaw surgery?
Most incisions performed during jaw surgery will be done inside your mouth, so there won’t be any visible scars. In some cases, a small incision will be needed in the jaw, but it’s usually less than 5 mm long and virtually unnoticeable.
Why do I need braces or Invisalign after surgery?
