Best place to get your pearly whites fixed! I’ve been coming here to help get my teeth straightened with braces and headgear for a year now and all the dentists there treat everybody really well. I’ve made a lot of progress with them and my teeth are almost gonna be fixed. They treat people really well and the atmosphere there is nice. The appointments don’t take too long and nothing hurts! If you’re looking for an orthodontist come here, You’ll have no regrets. - Anthony Canul.

I was very guarded about seeing an orthodontist because I needed help but I was on a budget. They gave me a free consultation with X-rays and other perks, the whole time I was saying how I can’t afford anything, they kept saying it was free and they meant it. They simply let me know what was going, what I could do about it with them, and how they could help me get connected with other specialist if I needed. The X-rays and things were mine to keep for free and I called them back once I made a decision on getting a retainer. Very simple and easy. The staff, I think Angela was her name, very attentive. The orthodontist I had, it was like being treated by Ted Lasso. Real nice and sincere guy.

It’s always nice to see Dr Don and his team. My daughter has been to this office for 5 years now. They are professional and personal. They are punctual and get the job done beautifully. They always make you feel good and when you leave the office. Can’t wait to come back!

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.
