Welcome to Norris Orthodontics, bringing smiles to Alabama.

Surgical Orthodontics

Dr. Norris is uniquely trained to work with oral surgeons and other dental specialists to treat difficult surgical cases. Just as orthodontics repositions teeth, surgical orthodontics (also known as orthognathic surgery) corrects jaw irregularities, not only to improve facial appearance but also to help you chew, speak, and breathe better. In other words, surgical orthodontics straightens your jaw. Moving the jaws also moves the teeth, so braces are always used in conjunction with jaw correction, which ensures teeth are in their proper positions after surgery. If you are a candidate for surgery, Dr. Norris and your general dentist will recommend an oral surgeon, and they will all be in close contact with one another throughout the course of your treatment.
