Corrective jaw surgery is essential when growth deformities of jaws are visibly apparent to the patient or parents. Corrective jaw surgery undeniably enhances chewing function, the stability of orthodontic treatment and the patient’s quality of life. Growth deformities of the facial skeleton are routinely diagnosed by both physicians and dentists. These growth deformities can lead to life-threatening conditions in the form of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Corrective jaw surgeries are routinely performed with minimal complication. Long-term improvements in breathing, chewing and speech are well documented.

The best results achieved through jaw reconstructive surgery occur when the Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon works with the patient’s orthodontist and other specialists. Dr. Lee has specialized in corrective jaw surgery for over 30 years and is considered one of the leaders of Jaw Reconstructive Surgery in the region. He is respected by other Orthognathic Surgeons as well as notable Orthodontists, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons, Sleep Medicine Physicians and Otolaryngologists. Corrective jaw surgery corrects skeletal and dental misalignment of the jaws. Jaw reconstructive surgery can ultimately improve a patient’s airway, their bite and chewing function as well as facial aesthetics.
