Orthodontic Surgery Overview
Surgical orthodontics at BIETSCH Orthodontics can help our patients with the severe bite issues, facial (face, mouth, jaw, and skull) bone discrepancies, malocclusion (dental discrepancies), or a combination of these complex issues. Dr. Tom Bietsch is trained to diagnose the need for surgical orthodontics and works closely with the oral maxilofacial surgeon to treat adults and teens once their jaw has completely developed. In our practice, we have state-of-the-art equipment and innovative technology to provide every patient with the best treatment possible. Also, known as orthognathic surgery, this procedure will remove the barriers to proper jaw alignment when traditional braces or other noninvasive orthodontic treatments will not be effective. It is usually necessary for a patient to wear braces on the teeth to correct the bite and straighten teeth before the surgical procedure. We invite you to learn more about our orthodontic practice in Far North Dallas, and Prosper, TX by scheduling a consultation. We will discuss all the options available to you.

About the Procedures
When you have an improper bite or your jaw did not grow in the appropriate position, this can cause many dental problems, impact your appearance, and your quality of life. Patients come to our office having oral health problems, the inability to eat normal food or chew properly, impaired speech, pain, and more. After an evaluation by Dr. Bietsch, it will be determined which surgery is best and what treatments will be needed after the surgery site (jaw) has healed. Each patient is different, so a customized treatment plan will be created for you.
What to Expect from Orthodontic Surgery
Each patient will have a surgery specific to their needs. Your orthognathic surgery can take several hours to complete under general anesthesia. We will monitor you closely until it is time for discharge. At home, we suggest that you rest, by taking about 2 weeks for recovery and healing time. You will have follow-up appointments with Dr. Bietsch to check your progress and continue your orthodontic care until completion.
Orthodontic Surgery Aftercare
Please call with your questions and we will be happy to assist you. Dr. Bietsch will also talk to you about how to properly care for your surgery site and what complications to look for before the scheduled surgery date.
