Oct. 26, 2010 - PRLog -- Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.

Using the latest in digital imaging technology, Pitner Orthodontcis can demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times, recovery periods and the overall efficacy of your surgery. State-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength and predictability to your treatment.  These advances in technology, procedures and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, thus allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.

Orthognathic surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. Dr. Pitner will determine if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you.

Dr. Leslie Pitner graduated with distinction from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry in 2002, where she was elected to membership in OKU, a dental honor society. She also completed her specialty certificate at UNC and received her Master of Science in orthodontics in 2005.

Dr. Pitner brings an eye for beauty and detail from her training in art and an enthusiasm for bringing that beauty to each patient’s smile. In 2007, she completed a unique Masters degree in Positive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. She uses this education to encourage patients to grow in their strengths through the challenges of orthodontics and enjoy the positive power of a smile.
