Surgery and Braces are a great solution for anyone with severe bite issues that involve moving not only the teeth but also the jaws to fix the issues present and deliver a beautiful result. By moving the jaws as well as the teeth during Orthodontic treatment Dr. Dykes can improve your smile as well as your facial esthetics! This is great for people that suffer from sleep apnea, sever open bites, severe overbites or underbites, and in certain trauma situations which have deviated the jaws previously creating a bad bite. Another candidate which can benefit from this treatment is anyone with severe TMJ issues.
