Dr. David C. Ash and Dr. R. Neil Sundheimer utilize this procedure to correct jaw or skeletal deformities that can cause a severe malocclusion—an improper bite. These are issues that cannot be addressed by orthodontics or appliances alone. Often, The Institute of Jaw and Facial Surgery will work with orthodontists to prepare the alignment of the teeth and jaws before your corrective jaw surgery in Canton or Akron, Ohio. See your dentist or physician for a referral.
