Orthognathic Surgery (Jaw Surgery)
When the jaw is in the wrong position, it can cause a host of problems that may affect chewing, swallowing, and breathing, as well as facial appearance. Improper jaw alignment may be caused by injury, birth defect, or a difference between the growth rates of the upper and lower jaws. Whatever the reason, bringing the jaw and teeth into better balance can improve the functionality and overall health of your jaw.
Dr. Stein and Dr. Koslovsky use the most advanced treatment options to correct a wide range of major and minor skeletal and dental deformities in the jaw. If you’re suffering from chronic jaw pain, biting and chewing difficulties, or any other jaw related problems, we can help.
What is orthognathic surgery?
Traditional orthodontics, otherwise known as braces, may correct misaligned teeth. However, misalignment is typically caused by poor positioning of the jaw itself. Orthognathic surgery, or jaw surgery, can reposition a misaligned jaw in order to ensure that teeth meet properly and the jaw functions effectively. In some cases, orthognathic surgery can also help improve facial appearance by correcting facial imbalances, such as a receding chin or protruding jaw.
|POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS OF MISALIGNED JAWS|
|Chewing, biting, and swallowing difficulties||Breathing problems|
|Speech problems||Excessive wear on teeth|
|Chronic jaw pain (TMJ pain)||Inability to fully close mouth|
|Chronic headaches||Chronic dry mouth|
|Open space in bite||Protruding jaw|
|Facial imbalance||Sleep apnea (snoring and cessation of breathing during sleep)|

How is orthognathic surgery performed?
Correcting jaw deformities and bringing the teeth and jaw into proper alignment is often a team effort between an orthognathic surgeon and an orthodontist. Dr. Stein and Dr. Koslovsky will evaluate your condition and perform jaw surgery to reposition your jaw. Depending on your condition, your orthognathic surgeon may reposition all or part of your upper jaw, lower jaw, or chin. In addition, your orthodontist may provide braces to move your teeth into a better position both before and after your surgery. Working together, your orthognathic surgeon and your orthodontist can help you achieve a balanced, attractive, healthy, and functional smile.
Can I see what my jaw will look like before I have my surgery?
Yes! Dr. Stein and Dr. Koslovsky use the most sophisticated 3D computer modeling system to show you how your jaw surgery will proceed, as well as what your face will look like once the surgery is completed. Dr. Stein and Dr. Koslovsky will also thoroughly discuss all the details of your treatment with you before your procedure.
How does 3D Orthognathic surgery work?
3D orthognathic surgery is one of the newest forms of technology that assists in planning and presenting the patient’s skeletal and facial changes and outputs them to an exact surgical guide. The 3D technology has a variety of tools within it to assist our orthognathic surgeons in planning or presenting information. Our 3D technology allows for Dr. Stein and Dr. Koslovsky to precisely plan surgical options in advance and serves as an ideal guide to educate our patients on the possibilities of jaw surgery.

DR. STEIN'S PATIENTS SPEAK OUT
Dear Dr. Stein,
Dr. Stein, we wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you for the excellent care you provided for our daughter Ana. From the moment we met you during our first consultation, we knew Ana could not be in better hands. We truly appreciate your kindness and professionalism. She still talks about your letting her listen to music! See you during the summer for the next exposure! :)

You did an amazing job on my teeth. I could not have imagined that one day my teeth/smile would look this great. Thanks again for all your hard work. :)
My dentist, whom I regard highly, recommended Dr. Mark Stein for a complicated extraction that she would not perform. I was scared of this procedure, but Dr. Mark Stein made it easy—a walk in the park. The staff was extremely friendly and the entire experience was beyond my expectations. I give Dr. Stein an A+.
Best place ever to go get your wisdom teeth pulled. They were so pleasant as soon as you met them and made sure you were comfortable and even followed up after hours at home to make sure I was ok and had no more concerns. I didn't feel a thing. Dr. Stein and his staff are great!
Dr. Stein is a wonderful surgeon. I had a true fear of having teeth pulled, to the extent that I have had fillings and then root canals done on my wisdom teeth. Please let me advise don't do that. Instead, visit Dr. Stein. All of his work for me has been painless, fast, friendly, and professional. I recommend Dr. Stein without reservation.
I was referred to Dr. Stein for extraction and a dental implant. He was extremely kind, listened to my concerns and explained everything thoroughly. The procedure was totally painless and I had no problems afterwards unlike my other dental experiences. I would highly recommend Dr. Stein to anyone needing an oral surgeon. A+++
Dr. Stein is an outstanding oral surgeon. He is extremely friendly and gentle, called me the evening after my surgery to make sure I was doing OK, and took plenty of time to explain what he was doing and what to expect. I recommend him highly.
Dearest Dr. Stein & Wonderful Staff Members,
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you all for getting me in so promptly for my consult, then for the fast appointment, and finally for the professional courtesy. You truly made me feel very comfortable and I did not want it to go unnoticed.
Thank you…from the bottom of my heart. You have changed my life, making each and every day a reason to show off my beautiful smile. I appreciate all that you have done. I am reminded of your hard work, patience, compassion and confidence every time I look in the mirror.
Thank you so very much. Because of you, I can put my past to rest and smile bright into my future...
Dr. Stein is a brilliant doctor and surgeon, who is highly professional and caring. He is hard working, and is truly committed to his patients. He practices cutting edge medicine, and is highly respected by his peers.

DR. KOSLOVSKY'S PATIENTS SPEAK OUT
I know the thought of having a tooth extracted doesn't exactly bring calm and serenity to mind; however, my experience with Dr. Koslovsky was just that! I felt so comfortable with Dr. Koslovsky, he is a master of his work. Dr. Koslovsky does an amazing job of preparing you for what is to come during the appointment! I cannot recommend Dr. Koslovsky enough, such a pleasant experience.
Great surgeon and extremely dedicated to his patients!
I cannot say enough incredible things about Dr. Koslovsky. It has been a little over 2 years since my surgery and to say I am happy with the results would be an understatement. I am a better version of myself, I no longer am self-conscious to speak without thinking people are staring at my under bite. Dr. Koslovsky is professional, personable, thorough, extremely knowledgeable about what he does, and trustworthy.
Dr. Koslovsky might be the best oral surgeon I've ever had. Did a sensitive bilateral surgery and followed up. Constantly answered all my questions. Amazing doctor.
Dr. Koslovsky provides excellent care and is very pleasant to interact with.
