Combined Surgery and Orthodontics in Newcastle
Some patients have jaw size discrepancies that cannot be corrected with braces. In these cases, surgical lengthening or shortening of the jaw may be required. Dr Peter Vaughan works with Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons in the treatment of these cases.
Understanding Orthodontic Surgery
Dental surgery sounds like a dramatic treatment and many patients become very worried at its mention. All potential surgery patients are given non-surgical options for treatment and the advantages and disadvantages of surgery are explained. The main advantage with surgery is it that it can shorten treatment time considerably and it will almost always produce a better result.
We encourage prospective surgical patients to talk to patients who have already undergone these surgical procedures.
