Orthognathic surgery moves your teeth and jaws into a new position that results in a more attractive, functional and healthy dental-facial relationship.
We are very familiar with facial appearances that are associated with jaw growth disturbances; the protruding lower jaw, the receding jaw and chin; the gummy smile; and the face which appears overly long.
These are all associated with malocclusions as well, such that correction of the bite problem with surgery will usually improve the overall facial balance as well. It is often stated that the world sees us from the outside, not recognizing that many malocclusions are associated with each particular facial appearance.
Amazing doctor. I needed double jaw surgery for years and had put this off… finally I did it. I couldn’t be happier with the results. He is an amazing and caring doctor and I would recommend him to anyone!
Dr. Wittenberg is very professional and offers excellent advice for any of your concerns. I’m so glad that I went with him and heeded his suggestions. Just 2 days after surgery I didn’t require any painkillers and have been healing extremely well. The staff is very friendly and attentive and will reply to any email or phone-call quickly. I cannot express how happy I am with the results!
The staff are just wonderful they make you feel so welcome and comfortable and answer every little question or concern that you have I was very nervous going into my surgery for mandibular advancement but thanks to the staff especially Emily, who I called just about every day after my surgery with little questions and concerns and she answered every one of those and kindly reassured me that I would be well soon. Dr. Wittenberg performed excellent in the surgery and I cannot thank him enough. Recovery was much faster than anticipated and everything went amazingly well. 10/10 experience
