Surgical Treatment

Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.

Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times, recovery periods and the overall efficacy of your surgery. State-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength and predictability to your treatment.  These advances in technology, procedures and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, thus allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.

Orthognathic surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. We will determine if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you.

Dr. Ray is the absolute best! I went in with concerns about one tooth but she perfected my entire mouth. People have asked if I have veneers because of her amazing work. I didn't understand why she worked so hard during my appointments but I completely get it now. My smile is perfect and I'm always showing it off, thanks to Dr. Ray. And oh, every member of her staff have always gone above and beyond to make sure everything is ok. I'm going to miss them when my youngest is out of her braces.

Highly recommend Playa Vista Orthodontics! Dr. Ray and her team are amazing! From day one of my daughter's consultation for her braces to the day of removal, I can't express how sweet and attentive everyone at this office has been with my daughter and I. They are very thorough in answering all your questions and give you all the information you need to understand the process. The office is clean and modern, and their care during COVID was exceptional.
