Orthognathic Surgery


Orthognathic surgery is performed to improve the alignment of the jaws and teeth. A more balanced facial appearance as well as a great smile can be yours. Improved dental health, better jaw function, and greater self-confidence are only a few of the many benefits that can be accomplished with orthognathic surgery.

It is never too late to consider surgery as an option to improve your jaw function, dental occlusion, airway, and facial appearance. Our patients range in age from adolescence to adult, and all looking forward to the positive changes about to occur in the quality of their life. Current technology combines orthodontic treatment and orthognathic surgery to achieve optimal results.

You will be supported by a friendly staff of caring professionals at our office. Dr. Henry will discuss any concerns that you have regarding your dental occlusion and function, facial appearance, sleep disturbances secondary to sleep apnea, and jaw relationships during your initial consultation appointment. He will perform a detailed oral and facial examination. Radiographs, models, and other records will be reviewed or taken at this time. After arriving at a diagnosis, the procedures to be performed to help alleviate your problems will be discussed in-depth with appropriate models and similar case presentations. The anticipated facial and occlusal results as well as other possible benefits of surgery such as improved nasal airway, resolution of sleep apnea will be reviewed. Sufficient time will be allotted to allow all of your questions to be answered.

All orthognathic surgery is performed at the Cheshire Medical Center, 580 Court Street in Keene, New Hampshire.
