Dr Don and his staff have always gone the extra mile to ensure all my daughters receive excellent care. My one daughter has sensory differences and having anyone touch her let alone work on her mouth. Dr Don and now Dr Kim always take extra time to make sure she is comfortable. All the office staff is amazing and I am so grateful for their care. Thank you we appreciate all of you more than words can say.

You will not find anyone better in Marin County.
This doctor is a perfectionist and it will show in your child’s final results.
I went to another orthodontist prior to finding Dr.wilson
and there was a clear difference in knowledge and expertise.
My brother’s child had an extreme dental malformation. They
came all the way from SF to see Dr. Wilson and the results were
Amazing! My Nephew’s teeth are perfect!
We are on our third child being treated by Dr. Wilson
and I cannot say enough about this wonderful doctor
and His Office staff. Trust me when I tell you he is fantastic.
You will not be disappointed!

Jaw Surgery


Orthognathic (Orthodontic) Jaw Surgery

Don L Wilson DDS MSD Novato CA 94945 Jaw Surgery PhotoOrthognathic (orthodontic) jaw surgery may be required to correct misalignment of the jaws when braces alone are not enough.

The least intervention necessary is best, but sometimes, creating a healthy bite requires more than braces.

The word orthognathic comes from the Greek language and means ‘to straighten’ (ortho) and ‘jaw’ (ngathic). Therefore, orthognathic surgery is jaw surgery used to correct misaligned jaws.

Orthodontics can usually correct bite problems when the teeth are misaligned, but corrective jaw surgery may be necessary to correct misalignment of the jaws. This misalignment may be caused by upper and lower jaws growing at different rates, or by injury and/or birth defects. Often these abnormalities can cause…

  • Difficulty with chewing or biting
  • Difficulty with swallowing
  • Difficulty with clear speech
  • Chronic jaw or jaw joint (TMJ) pain
  • Headache, neck pain or shoulder pain
  • Pain that radiates into the body
  • Excessive wear of the teeth
  • Open bite (upper and lower teeth don’t meet when the mouth is closed)
  • Unbalanced facial appearance from the front or side
  • Receding chin
  • Protruding jaw
  • Difficulty making lips meet
  • Chronic mouth breathing and dry mouth
  • Sleep problems, including snoring, difficult breathing and sleep apnea

Corrective jaw surgery will move your teeth and jaws into positions that are more balanced, functional and healthy. While the goal of orthognathic surgery is to improve bite and function, for many patients the surgery also improves appearance and speech. The results of corrective jaw surgery can be dramatic and will have a positive effect on your oral health, overall health and self-esteem.

Don L Wilson DDS MSD Novato CA 94945 RabbitUsing the latest in digital imaging technology, Dr. Don and Dr. Kim will determine if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you and will demonstrate to you the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning will…

  • Reveal, in advance, the dramatic improvements in your facial balance
  • Minimize your treatment time, recovery period and the overall success of surgery.

State-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength and predictability to 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.
