Metal Braces & More At Oubre Orthodontics

Here at Oubre Orthodontics, we proudly offer a variety of expert treatments, including metal braces, to help our patients achieve healthy, beautiful smiles. In addition to providing high-quality orthodontic treatments, we also specialize in correcting problems, such as jaw issues. This is where our corrective jaw surgery comes in.

Lafayette Orthodontics & Surgery

Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.

Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning allows you to better visualize and understand your options and outcomes. State-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength, and predictability to your 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. 

Surgery Prevention & Lafayette Orthodontics

As your Lafayette orthodontist, we may deem Orthognathic surgery unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. A temporary anchorage device (TAD) may make surgery unnecessary, as well as lessening the time spent in metal braces or another orthodontic treatment. Palatal expanders can also eliminate the need for surgery by expanding the jaw to correct bite issues or crowding. When used for children with developing jaws, they can prevent the development of many orthodontic issues, and help to avoid surgeries necessary to correct them.
