Surgical Orthodontics for Children & Adults in New York City

Nobody wants to hear the words, “You need surgery”—but if you’re in a situation where a procedure is inevitable, you should turn to the best orthodontists in New York City. At Elite Orthodontics, we specialize in surgical orthodontics for patients of all ages. Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a specialized field that combines orthodontic treatment with corrective jaw surgery to address severe bite discrepancies and facial irregularities. If you or your child are in need of orthognathic surgery, you can count on our team to provide you with top-of-the-line care.

Transformative Solutions for Bite Irregularities

Surgical orthodontics is a comprehensive approach to correcting complex dental and facial issues that cannot be resolved with traditional orthodontic treatment alone. Whether it's an overbite, underbite, open bite, or crossbite, our experienced orthodontists will work closely with oral and maxillofacial surgeons to develop personalized treatment plans that achieve optimal functional and aesthetic results.

Procedure for Adults

Adult patients undergoing surgical orthodontics often have fully developed jaws. The surgical procedure typically involves repositioning the upper jaw (maxilla), lower jaw (mandible), or both to achieve proper alignment and balance between the teeth and facial structures.

Procedure for Children

For children requiring surgical orthodontics, the treatment approach may differ slightly from that of adults. In some cases, early intervention with orthodontic appliances may be recommended to guide jaw growth and development. Once skeletal maturity is reached, typically in the late teenage years, surgical intervention may be considered to address remaining skeletal discrepancies. Our team at Elite Orthodontics specializes in coordinating with pediatric oral and maxillofacial surgeons to ensure the best possible outcome for our young patients.
