What Our Patients Say

“Dr. English is very kind and skilled. He performed an implant procedure in my lower jaw. Everything went smoothly and I never felt any pain. I’ve been to his office four times and was never left waiting - always seen as scheduled.”

Arthur D.

“I highly recommend Dr. Ray English III. He and his staff made a somewhat complicated procedure as pain free and relaxed as possible. He gave options, described the procedures in detail before performing them, and prepared me for possible complications. I attribute my relatively easy recovery to his expertise and professionalism.”

Janice B.

“Dr. English and his team were highly professional, competent, and very efficient. The facility is clean, modern, and medical equipment is state-of-the-art. The procedure and subsequent follow up visits were pleasant experiences.”

The Jaw Surgery Process


Pre-Surgery Orthodontics

Post-Operative Orthodontics

Following surgery, your orthodontist will make small changes to ensure you are happy with the way your teeth meet.

What Is Corrective Jaw Surgery?

Orthognathic Surgery

Orthognatic treatment, or corrective jaw surgery, is designed to correct various issues associated with the jaw bone. This could be anything from correcting problems with your bite and facial symmetry to correcting damage caused by injury, or even to provide relief from sleep apnea.

Am I a Good Candidate for Jaw Surgery?

In general, jaw surgery from our Rhode Island center is a good option for you if:

  • You are in relatively good overall health
  • Your bite cannot be corrected with braces alone
  • You have severe sleep apnea and cannot tolerate a CPAP
