Yale Maxillofacial and Orthognathic Surgery Program

The Yale Maxillofacial and Orthognathic Surgery Program has one of the most comprehensive and most respected treatment programs in the nation.

Our internationally recognized surgeons perform innovative procedures to revise disproportions of the upper and lower jaws, and related structures in both children and adults. 

Our goal is to alleviate symptoms of maxillofacial discrepancies to maximize your ability to speak, eat, and chew; to alleviate breathing problems; and to minimize TMJ pain and the potential for sleep apnea. We also focus on improving facial symmetry by balancing jaw-to-face ratio.

During the surgical planning stage, we strive to use the most sophisticated 3D imaging tools available. With 3D photo imaging, 3D CT scan imaging, and special software programs, we can simulate proposed outcomes so that you can see the results before surgery. 

Whether you or your child will be receiving treatment, we know you will have a lot of questions. Our multidisciplinary team of surgeons and clinical experts will provide detailed answers to make sure you feel comfortable, every step of the way.
