Modern orthodontics has the ability to transform virtually any condition affecting the alignment of your smile. However, some skeletal discrepancies may require incorporating surgical correction of the underlying skeletal abnormality with the orthodontic treatment. In these situations, Drs. Leone & Vaughn will refer you to a highly qualified expert who specializes in surgical orthodontics in Seattle for the best possible outcome.
These conditions typically need to be surgically corrected before our orthodontists can begin straightening your teeth. The need for surgery arises when the jaw does not line up correctly and a good bite can’t be achieved with braces alone. An oral surgeon will help by properly aligning the jaw so Dr. Leone and Dr. Vaughn can successfully place your braces.
