Orthognathic Surgery

Dr. Troy M. Lefort, D.D.S and the rest of the care team at Lefort Orthodontics provides premier orthodontics in Moss Bluff, Lake Charles, and the surrounding areas. Our services aim to help our patients live happier, more pain-free lives. In addition to offering services to Lake Charles adult braces patients, we also help patients seeking surgical solutions to jaw and teeth abnormalities.

Do I Need Orthognathic Surgery?

For some patients, undergoing our cutting-edge Lake Charles Invisalign treatment or other orthodontic therapies is sufficient to correct misalignments of the teeth or jaw. However, for some, alignment concerns require more intensive and targeted solutions. Patients who experience difficulty when chewing, biting, speaking, and sleeping can benefit from orthognathic surgery to correct jaw alignment. Orthognathic surgery may accompany non-surgical alignment correction to improve the overall appearance of the facial profile, too.

Is Surgery the Right Solution?

As a board certified practitioner, Dr. Lefort is able to provide patients with accurate insights into their specific concerns. A consultation with him is the perfect opportunity to ask questions such as:

  • Is the misalignment going to get worse?
  • What are the advantages and potential drawbacks of different treatments?
  • What is the success rate of surgery?
  • What can I expect to change after surgery?
