If you have developed an improper or misaligned bite, you will likely benefit from corrective jaw surgery. Jaw growth is a gradual process and in some instances, the upper and lower jaws can grow at different rates. Injuries and birth defects can also affect jaw alignment. Chewing and speech functions, long-term oral health, and your facial appearance can all suffer from these problems.
Orthodontics alone can correct bite problems when only the teeth are involved, while orthognathic surgery can reposition jaws, which often resolves even the most severe functional and cosmetic issues.
This well demonstrated gallery provides clear understanding of surgical benefits, Before and After pictures, cases description, and 3D images. This section will help you to slightly understand the steps of your future orthognathic surgery.
To get comprehensive treatment plan, you are welcome to schedule a consultation in our clinic in Roseville, CA. During the first consultation you'll get a detailed description of all surgical steps, benefits, and healing process understanding.

"My 20 year old son had severe underbite. Also small oral cavity. Has done 2nd course of bracing and this second time had been now 2 years. We got referred to Dr. Antipov, DDS by our orthodontist and we are very very pleased with the outcome of the surgery. Doctor spends as much time we need to answer questions. We never felt rushed to leave. He is very professional, explains well and confident of what he can offer to help him. Staff all have been polite and helpful and knew what I was talking about or calling about. Our son needed to do upper and lower jaw surgery which it was very involved procedure. Of course he was nervous and we were as well. But all of us felt very positive and confident prior to surgery and decided to pursue the summer of 2018. Surgery was eight hours straight. Postop was as expected, lots of swelling as Dr. explain.
Postop was not easy but it was explained and to be anticipated for major procedure. I was able to text him and ask questions while he was still in the hospital and he has call back within an hour or two and help the situation out. It is now post op four-month and my son is very very happy of his new face and the jaw. It was well worth it. Very pleased we got this done. My son is ready to tackle his future and feeling relief that he will no longer be bound to his dental issues. No post op complications! Doctor pays attention to the details and had made sure for the best outcome. We feel we have developed great rapport with doctor and staff.
Thank you very much!!! We are glad we got referred to you."
