When alignment problems affect your ability to speak, eat and live normally, you may need to undergo corrective surgery. Prior to surgery, Dr. Michael Emanuel may recommend pre-surgical orthodontics in Brooklyn, New York, to prepare your mouth and enhance the results. Pre-surgical orthodontics may include using an orthodontic appliance to coordinate the jaws and teeth so that they are in proper position at the time of surgery. For more information about pre-surgical orthodontics, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our friendly orthodontist by calling 718-336-5005.

If your oral health and function has sustained significant damage and cannot by repaired by more conservative treatments, our orthodontist may recommend jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery. Surgical treatment may be needed if you have abnormalities in your teeth, jaws or facial bones that need to be corrected. It is especially important to receive treatment if these abnormalities are causing you pain or difficulty when you speak, chew, eat, sleep or participate in any other routine activities. In addition to improving your oral health and helping you function better, jaw surgery can help improve the appearance of your smile and your overall facial profile.

At our office, we make sure you achieve the smile you deserve by utilizing the latest technology, techniques and materials. Before your treatment, we will review the procedure and go over the details with you so that you can be confident in the care you will receive. You can rest assured, knowing our team will always maintain a comfortable, positive environment while you undergo treatment. Following jaw surgery, you may need another treatment so that you get the best results. If you want to learn more about jaw surgery and whether it is right for your smile, call and speak to our team today. We are excited to give you a smile you will love!
