Your initial visit will be for a consultation with the doctor and his staff. At that visit your health history will be reviewed. We will review your functional and esthetic concerns. The doctor will perform an examination and make measurements of your head and face. We will review the surgical options and inform you of alternative forms of treatment. You will be shown before and after photos of patients with similar diagnosis.
A presurgical consultation is necessary for most corrective jaw and cosmetic facial procedures. This will give you the opportunity to meet with Dr. Joseph and his staff. At this visit we will review your medical history and discuss the surgical treatment. We will also review the alternatives as well as anesthetic options.
Our office uses computer imaging for corrective jaw surgery and facial cosmetic cases. Pretreatment photographs and x-rays are used to simulate the surgical result allowing us to preview your surgical possibilities.
Surgical Workup and Treatment Planning
Records, which include X-rays, facial photographs and models of your teeth are made and a computer aided cephalometric analysis will be performed by the doctor to provide a blue print for your surgical and orthodontic treatment.
We use patient-specific data to virtually show an orthognathic (jaw) procedure simulation customized for each patient. You will able to preview a simulation of corrective jaw surgery before the actual procedure.
This technology allows Dr Joseph to take that data directly into the operating room and use it as a customized surgical plan for each patient. There is more efficiency and accuracy.
