Bilateral Sagittal Split Osteotomy

If you or your child has jaw deficiencies or protrusions due to birth defects or other reasons, a bilateral sagittal split osteotomy can be used to move the jaw forward or backward.

By using advanced 3D imaging to assess you or your child’s specific condition, we can simulate the outcome of proposed surgical plans and adjust any discrepancies before surgery. The 3D technology allows us to create a surgical plan with a level of accuracy not available with traditional imaging technology.

At the Yale Maxillofacial and Orthognathic Surgery Program, our comprehensive surgical team will create a treatment plan tailored for you or your child. We answer all of your questions and concerns about the surgical process, from pre-surgical preparation to recovery and beyond. Our goal is to correct you or your child’s malocclusion (misalignment of teeth and jaws) and its complications and improve facial appearance and symmetry.
